Senior Creative

Kevin Airgid

I started developing interactive when Mosaic was the dominate browser. My career began working for Western University in London, Ontario developing generation one websites. I continued to grow my interactive experience working for companies developing Macromedia Director Projects for Kiosks, Interactive TV, CD-ROM and other old school technologies. I moved to the metro Detroit area and worked for large advertising agencies, interactive studios and dot-com companies. Fourteen years ago I launched my interactive studio. Over the years working with various teams we developed interactive and motion graphics for clients such as: Disney, Nike, ESPN, CBC, MTV and Pepsi. I have authored several books, and my work has been featured in: HOW Magazine, Adobe.com, G4 Tech TV, Communication Arts, FITC, and the Globe and Mail.
