Kevin Van Westen
Director of Graphic Production
Don’t let his easy-going demeanor fool you: Kevin is a driven creative leader with decades of award-winning work under his belt—and eye-popping design and production skills at his fingertips. He’s been going 5280 with us since 1984. As Director of Graphic Production, Kevin is responsible for creative technology development, processes, procurement and training. When deadlines converge and teams get stretched, Kevin throws on his superhero cape and digs in, putting his considerable art direction skills to work wherever they’re needed most. He was also the first L&Ser to receive the Creative Legacy Award from the South Dakota Advertising Federation back in 2008. Kevin earned his AA degree in Commercial Art from Alexandria Technical College in Alexandria, MN.
