Kayla Sweger

Graphic Designer

Lancaster, PA, USA
I am a graphic designer and amateur photographer. I specialize in logo design, company branding, menu design and print advertising.

Graphic design is the perfect creative outlet for me. From the day I found my passion for design, it became an intricate part of who I am and how I view the world. I can’t walk down the street or drive down the road without analyzing the layouts and typography of billboards. Grocery shopping not only involves buying food but also a subconscious study of the packaging that lines the shelves of the store.

No matter what I do or where I go, I am constantly looking at things with a creative eye, drawing inspiration from every environment I encounter.
