Edwin Kuo – Thought Practitioner Consultant
Edwin is a creative systems thinker who connects ideas and concepts together to design stronger and more effective communication solutions. Fundamentally, the design disciple is about creating systems. Whether it’s using visual elements or business practices, the focus is on creating a strategic system that creates a narrative or a sustainable business solution…or both.
Edwin holds a BFA in graphic design from the Rhode Island School of Design and a master’s degree in Design Management from Pratt Institute. He has started two design studios and spent many successful years in book and magazine publishing.
Edwin has served as the art director for The James Beard Foundation and designed books for notable publishers and brands such as Sterling Publishing, John Wiley and Sons, Readers Digest, Weight Watchers and Betty Crocker.
Edwin is a news junkie, an avid reader and researcher. You can usually find him close to his iPad reading about the world, trends and culture. He recently launched itsdesignthinking.com, a website that seeks to change the conversation around design thinking and to promote its value towards business strategy.
