Kyle Kenneth Beck
I majored in Industrial Design at Wentworth Institute of Technology (BSID ‘09). After interning for for Hasbro and Footjoy while in school, I took a role with Boston-based sporting goods company City Sports to launch their private label collection.
After moving to Austin in 2010, I continued to freelance for City Sports as well as hone my craftsmanship with jobs in carpentry and metalwork.
Through a colleague, I landed at Ion Art working on various projects that encompass all the skills I’ve gathered along my path. Starting by creating vector files for CNC-machining and technical build packets, I worked into a more design-centric role and learned the many intricacies needed to run a small business. By engaging with all departments from design through fabrication, estimating and installation, I built an understanding of the company which eventually spring-boarded me into a role as design director. In this role, I oversee and mentor the design team (7 people) and work with sales and estimating to filter incoming jobs, put out fires, while continuing to help Ion Art output some of the most amazing work in Austin.
I balance my day job with personal creative work and an adventurous lifestyle of rock climbing and paddle boarding. I spend time with my wife and dog exploring the Hill Country for watering holes and off the path BBQ shacks.
