Kennedy

I am Kennedy, a naively optimistic entrepreneur. When I am not building my own products I am hired as a UX strategist & mobile UI designer. I live full time in NYC, but I can often be found in SF for my clients out West. My side hobby is real estate, so I occasionally spend time in Florida near where I grew up. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my wife, surfing, motorcycles, eating cookies, continuing my self-education, and drinking coffee.

How I work

You are an agency that needs a mercenary to quickly knock out that project. Or you're a startup that needs an MVP to show the investors. Either way, I will hand-craft your mobile design to fit the brand. We will start off discussing the overall goal and vision. From there we will make a few sketches then start getting the flow down in wireframes. After we agree that we are on the right path I will take everything into Sketch to finalize the pixel-perfect design. The final step is to get those gorgeous assets to the developer. Don't worry, I won't leave you high and dry; I will be there for those last-minute changes. You can already read more about my process for creating mobile apps if you want to know more.

The history

The original Kennedy’s Garage was opened by my grandfather Theron Kennedy, in Lake of the Ozark, Missouri on February 28th, 1941.

Although 1941 was a different time and the business was building cars, nothing has changed as far as working hard. The key to his success was the long term relationships that he developed with his customers and the community. Today I still value those traditions and enjoy the old fashioned handshake. The original Kennedy’s Garage was shut down after the passing of Theron. I later reclaimed the name and wanted to keep the same values of my grandfather. Since then the family has moved away from building cars, but we still have a deep passion for them.
