I 'm Kevin Mitchell, a Senior Digital Art Director from the UK currently based in the beautiful city of Hamburg in the north of Germany. I have 20 years design experience working as a digital creative for international agencies, startups and big brands throughout Europe.
When I'm not busy designing I enjoy running, travel, vinyl records, photography, great movies & TV shows, playing drums and getting out & about on my vintage Vespa.

Recent Key Projects
Audi Digital Branding 2017
As lead Digital Designer I created and developed the look & feel of the new Audi User Interface and lead the design team in the development of the digital branding for use across multiple digital applications and devices. My role as a digital design consultant for the agency Strichpunkt involved extensive client liaison and regular design presentations to the Head of Digital Business and Strategy. This project then developed further to include the design, conception and development of the new myAudi app.
Audi Startup - ‘Audi on Demand’ Service
For the mobility startup ‘Audi on Demand’, I worked together with AKQA & our Audi clients in the mobility house in Munich. Over the course of a year I designed and developed the UI/UX design for the new mobility service. The Audi on Demand app is a premium car rental service where customers can choose from an exclusive Audi fleet and have the car delivered directly to them. Working in sprints alongside a highly skilled and talented team of developers we created the service which is currently available in San Francisco, Munich, Manchester, Beijing and Singapore.
