Dennis Boyle is an award-winning creative director and designer. Specializing in identity creation, brand activation, and the development of compelling visual systems over many mediums, he is an executive-level thinker and strategic partner to his Clients.

The right concept will be an entire solution and the resolving of a key part of your business. With an emphasis on problem-definition, followed by insight, vision, and articulation – complex communication problems can be transformed into fresh and influential new messaging. The outcome of a project is proportional to how the design situation was first understood and a deeper examination of context enables creativity to pivot from a place of new knowledge.

Boyle brings a passion for visual communication and almost 20 years of consulting experience to your opportunity. He is committed to developing solutions that excite, inspire and challenge. The audience should be engaged emotionally and intellectually – the right solution will effect change and it should be timeless.

‘The idea and the design must have vision, courage and determination’– Massimo Vignelli.
