"Lightning Kev" is Kevin Coochwytewa, a graphic designer and art director with over 15 years experience working for in-house art departments in the nonprofit, advertising and publishing industries. He holds a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Arizona and has won awards for his work in typography, illustration and publication design.
As an infant, Kevin was given the name Talwif’tiyo, meaning Lightning Boy in the Hopi language by his late paternal grandmother, who was from the Water Clan at the village of Mishongnovi. Naturally, he has always had a connection to his given name. He specializes in all aspects of visual communication including logo, branding, editorial, advertising and environmental graphics. Kevin credits his indigenous Isleta Pueblo and Hopi heritage with sparking his lifelong appreciation of art and design. Being born into and immersed in a vibrant living culture has inspired and shaped the thought processes and executions of his designs.
