Toby Kuhn

ABOUT TOBY

Toby recently joined forces with the Collective after spending nearly fifteen years as part of the Creative Team at Kuhn & Wittenborn Advertising in Kansas City, MO. Climbing his way up the ranks from Intern to Senior Graphic Designer, it was there that he honed his professional design skills of turning big ideas into well executed work. His experience crosses over from all areas of print design, including outdoor, direct mail and collateral, into interactive and digital design including websites, emails and online ads. A few of the clients he has worked with include Assurant Employee Benefits, Crown Center, GEHA, Kansas Speedway, Kansas City Aviation Department, KC Chamber, KCP&L and Liberty Hospital.

When Toby isn’t busy practicing the Art of Design, he can often be found practicing the Art of Zen, whether though yoga and meditation or taking a relaxing break in his own personal float tank. He enjoys spending family time with his wife and two kids along with their four cats. As a fellow graduate from the University of Kansas, he is a big fan of KU basketball. He also enjoys bicycle rides in the summer, snowboarding in the winter and hitting the gym year round. Other hobbies include listening to Podcasts and trying out new craft beers with old friends.
