Kaden Stephens


I’m an illustrator, designer, and visual artist who thrives in creating captivating designs. My passion for design sparked at a young age, fueling a lifelong pursuit to elevate every project I touch. I create designs that are not only mind-blowing but also reflect my strengths in creativity and analytical thinking. I enjoy solving problems and having fun with what I do, which is perfectly illustrated by my love for puzzles, escape rooms, and board games.

Growing up in a small Wyoming town, I learned the vital skill of hard work. As a stonemason’s apprentice, I learned firsthand the value of putting everything you have into your work. Each day left my hands torn and bloodied, but it also instilled an unwavering commitment to excellence. Whether hoisting massive rocks 50 feet into the air or designing the next best logo, I understand that greatness demands effort. Fast forward to today where the trowel has been replaced with a stylus, I continue to put in every last effort to make my work the highest quality and to push the bounds of creativity.
