Dylan Staniul – Partner / Design, Burnkit

Over the span of nearly 20 years in the business, Dylan has worked with an incredible variety of clients and industries, and has seen first-hand the evolution of the industry through the perpetual push-pull between print and digital, traditional and new media, online and offline. But he’s never lost sight of what’s most important—tell a story well and you will capture attention and create lasting impressions on people. Nearly kicked out of design school for his wild ideas, a common theme in his development as a designer is to break the rules in order to learn them.

Quoting Dylan

  • “I just said ‘yes’ to everything and learned that way.”
  • “Give yourself the time to try something that might not work. Don’t be afraid of going there.”
  • “Try something that might not be right, but could be great. You learn techniques along the way.”
  • “The key with branding is more than what you add. It’s what you take away. Remove distractions.”
  • “Your brand starts the conversation. It’s not the end of the conversation.”
