Kyle Schruder RGD


Hi! My name is Kyle. I like to use my editorial design background to help strategists, researchers, consultants, and other experts translate their data, tell their stories, and increase the impact of their work.

I lead design at Coactuate, a strategic design consultancy obsessed with helping organizations innovate and grow.I'm also an active member of the Association of Registered Graphic Designers, where I engage in the design community through mentoring, award judging, and portfolio reviews.
