Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Phil Shafer

I've been professionally working as graphic designer since receiving my BFA from the Kansas City Art institute, Photography and New Media department in 2000. My flat vector style has landed me jobs and collaborations on projects ranging from promotions to music packaging, and logo design. In 2006 I created Sikenomics Clothing, which is my apparel and accessory department of my design company Sike Style Designs. When I am not working for KUMed Center, doing freelance projects or murals, I am active in the KC area as a curator and resident artist at the Kultured Chameleon gallery.
