Kevin Spitta

CREATIVE STRATEGIST

I bring ideas to life, create and visualize user experiences, and build strategies to solve complex problems and reach ambitious business goals. I am an interdisciplinary* designer and international Fulbright student.

After working as an Art Director & Creative Strategist in Germany, I received a Fulbright scholarship to pursue my masters in PR & Advertising in Chicago. Now, before I return to Germany in fall 2018, I am exploring the vast opportunities in the U.S., personally and professionally.
