Mike Kus, a UK based designer, specializes in graphic & web design, branding, illustration, and photography. His work is frequently featured in design publications and he often speaks at design & tech conferences. As a child, Kus was always interested in creative ideas and even used to send designs of sneakers to Adidas. Kus attended the University of Chichester and graduated with a BA Honors in Art and Related Art. After joining The Body Shop’s visual merchandising team, Kus began to learn CSS and HTML for web and app design. During his time at The Body Shop, Kus designed store layouts and created both posters and point to scale graphics. 

Afterward, Kus became the Senior Designer at Carsonified, a web events company in Bath, UK. At Carsonified, Kus honed both his creative and technical skills as a web designer. Three years later, in 2011, Kus founded Mike Kus LTD, where he works for clients worldwide in graphic & web design. Some of his clients include Burberry, Red Bull, Land Rover, O2, Mixture.io, and Sapient Nitro. Furthermore, Kus’s unique photography has led to him amassing almost 800k followers on Instagram. According to Kus, his inspiration comes from the people around him that he works with on a daily basis. Kus is also a firm believer in “doing things your way”. He says that “there is a lot of peer pressure in the industry to do things a certain way” and his advice is to just “ignore this pressure and do it your way”.
