Art Director & Multimedia Creative

Kimberly Lavon

My Journey

My journey began in High School when upon graduation, I started a portrait artist tattoo artist apprenticeship. I worked in the tattoo industry for a year then moved on to earn my B.F.A. in Graphic Design & Fine Art Printmaking from (KCAD) Kendall College of Art & Design. In January, 2009 I moved back to my hometown
of Lansing Michigan to open my LLC: 8/2 Creative (now known as Kimberly Lavon INK.)


My business grew rapidly and the next year I moved into a larger space in the same building. There, I worked on prestigious brands, created innovative works of art and was given the honor of being the Graphic Designer and Artist Representative for the first Art Advocacy Day in Michigan in over 10 years. I was elated to represent the needs of all 89,000 creatives at this prestigious event.


All that brings us to the present where I have added an M.A. in Advertising to my credentials. I am currently seeking a position as Art Director or Senior Creative.
