After receiving his MFA in Graphic Design from Ohio University in 2017, Kian moved to New York where he started working with 2x4 Studios. At 2x4 Kian learned to apply motion graphics to a branding system. Kian’s knowledge of fine art allowed him to team up with the Jewish Museum NYC as Junior Designer in fall of 2017. His time spent at the Jewish Museum made him able to serve as a liaison between design and fine art. In addition to his work with graphic design at the Jewish Museum, Kian found himself immersed in his work and taking on new roles like exhibition design. At Sullivan NYC, Kian utilized all of his design knowledge to develop cohesive branding for large corporate brands like Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan Chase. Working with these design firms allowed Kian to refine his branding design skills, and became a mature multidisciplinary designer with a fine art background. He is currently pursuing his PhD in Interdisciplinary Arts at Ohio University.
