Here you will find some of the experiences from clients and people that have worked with me. Enjoy the reviews.
Kendell is a clever, witty, and precise Art creative who I had the joy of working with on the Mike for Black America initiative as part of the Mike Bloomberg 2020 Presidential campaign. Kendell walked into a scenario where there was not a clear aesthetic or visual command for different stakeholders within the campaign and was able to swiftly turn around a creative framework.
His attention to specific detail in his work reflects his passion for the graphic and typographic nature of design, but also his ambition to develop distinctive creative for his client.
Kendell’s humor was always a refreshing element of our work environment, and his perspectives and insights pushed our work in interesting and innovative directions. Kendell would be an excellent addition to any team, and you would be well suited to have him as a design lead.
Brand Strategist, Mike For Black America
Kendell was great to work with. Even through the toughest assignments, together we found ways to push through and keep pushing for quality. He’s a man of many roles. Bring him on and you’ll see all the things he can do for you.
Associate Creative Director, Decoded Advertising
I have known Kendell for a couple of years now as we run in the same networking circles, we graduated from the same communication design program at the New York City of Technology. This was my first time working with him, and I can say confidently that working with Kendell has been a breath of fresh air.
Kendell is a great creative leader and manager; he was able to guide us through a stressful time working on the Mike Bloomberg 2020 presidential campaign and create Branding for a new initiative “Mike for black America” from concepting to branding to creating content in less than a month. Something that would usually take months in a typical advertising agency environment would take months if not years, and we were able with his guidance do it in less than a month.
If given the opportunity to work with Kendell again, I wouldn’t hesitate. I was able to learn many things from him, and he helped me grow as a creative. Things I’m sure I will carry with me for the rest of my career in the industry.
Art Director, VMLY&R
Kendell is diligent, creative, and a great teammate. He wants to see his coworkers do well and is always willing to go the extra mile to help them succeed. Kendell is also willing to step up into a leadership role when the time comes for it, and when he does, he leads by example.

Working with Kendell was such a fantastic experience. He not only has the design skills, but he is able to help you think beyond the design to determine how your content will connect with your audience and how to better optimize it. He also helps you to evaluate what content is best used for which platform, taking the guesswork out of posting content and trying to deal with algorithms.
The content that he designed for me gave me more impressions and engagement than anything I ever designed for myself. If you’re seeking a designer who is a true professional, one who can help you create content that connects and converts, book Kendell right now!
Owner, Rock Career Development
As a new business owner, I knew I needed a logo as a way to identify my business but I wasn’t quite sure how to go about it. So I decided to outsource the task to Kendell Burton.
From the beginning, I could sense that Mr. Burton was very much up to the task. He was prepared with detailed questions about my business and my vision for it. He was very good at communicating clearly and in a timely manner.
He presented me with various images and inquired whether they matched my vision. I could tell he understood what I was looking for and was able to create the graphic embodiment of my business. It was above and beyond my expectations and even gave me a better sense of the image of my own business.
My online presence was in bad shape visually. It had no sense of direction until Kendell worked his magic, giving me a new logo and branding. I didn’t know what to expect going into the project, but he guided me through the process, answered all my questions, and was open to suggestions and feedback.
It was a painless experience for me and I could not be happier with the quality of the results. In summary: Kendell does high-quality work while being personable and easy to work with.
During my time at GLOW, I had the pleasure of working with Kendell on various projects. Aside from his phenomenal design work he was personally a pleasure to work with. I was impressed with how he offered constructive feedback to help elevate the cross-team collaborative experience and exceeded deadline/deliverable expectations. As a team member or a leader, Kendell earns my highest recommendation.

So a while back I paid for a Logo on Fivver. It wasn’t the best thing in the world, but I figured it was all right. I thought I was good to go and was ready to start building the next thing.
However, given it was only 5$ I figured I’d run it by some friends of mine that were graphic designers themselves. Upon showing them the logo, I got hit with a “That looks like stockwork” They were kind of disappointed with what I got for my money. Considering I only paid 5$ that’s saying something.
Kendell offered a redesign so I worked with him and took him up on the offer. A Few days later he provided some samples which I was ready to jump at because they were easily a thousand times better than what I was working with before.
This was a huge step forward for me because it allowed me to be confident in my self-representation and moving forward with building a company for myself. I’m still just starting out but this will help me go a long way.
