Kendall Tynes

Associate Principal

"Every project has a story to tell, emotions to evoke, connections to make, journeys to define, a sense of place to establish, and an experience to create. There is no one-size-fits-all formula, and that’s the beauty of user-centric design thinking—it revolves around human connection and problem solving—and it’s what I love the most about what I do."

Kendall’s drive is rooted in her personal experiences living in New York City. Having moved to the city in 2006 to study architecture, Kendall has since been influenced by the city’s fabric—the weaving of architecture, art and design, fashion, and culture. But what inspires her most are the people she’s met and the community she’s built along the way. Kendall  seeks to create experiences and enhance design, knowing that every person and every project has a story to tell and a story yet to be written; those stories hold the power to inspire, connect, and engage. In that capacity, she serves as creative director of Frank—A Perkins Eastman Studio, the firm’s in-house experiential graphic design studio whose staff specializes in branded environments, placemaking, public installations, interpretive graphics, signage and wayfinding systems, and brand identities. Kendall’s industry experience has allowed her to work with many of New York’s prestigious design institutions and companies, plus many other notable domestic and global clientele.
