Owner, Creative Director
Over the last 20 years, Kyle has worked with hundreds of clients to deliver impactful effective communications and marketing solutions. From logos to advertising, publications to websites, he has delighted his clients with the clarity he brings to every project.
Being a studio principal has given him endless opportunities to go behind the scenes in all kinds of businesses. He’s seen what makes them tick and what marketing solutions have worked best.
Kyle graduated from the University of Alberta in 1993 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. He and his wife have two growing boys and a basement covered in Lego.
Lead Developer, Designer
Since joining KLD in 2013, Ashley has been working on web development and has become KLD’s Web Queen for all things WordPress. Full of energy, and always up for a challenge, Ashley makes things happen. She has been the design and development lead on some of our most complex projects.
Ashley is a graduate of the MacEwan Design Program, does regular CrossFit training, is vegetarian (and GF), and loves, loves, loves her two cats Thomas and Loki.
Natika joined KLD in 2014 and often leads our print design projects. She has succeeded in taking on our most complex projects, such as the Responsible Investment Annual Report for AIMCo, donor and identity projects for the Royal Alex Hospital Foundation and identity and website design for the newly founded Edmonton Women’s Initiative. Natika has a passion for women’s issues, and ‘found her people’ at the inaugural Edmonton Women’s Initiative conference this past October.
Natika is originally from B.C., and has lived all over western Canada before settling in Edmonton. She graduated from the University of Alberta Design Program in 2014, and is a mean cribbage player.
Social Media and Content Creation
Jody joined KLD in 2017 to provide social media marketing campaigns and content creation services for clients. She brings years of experience in marketing, communications, graphic design and business development. For over a decade she ran her own design and marketing firm, and continues to manage the marketing and communications for a number of clients in Edmonton.
Jody is a graduate of the MacEwan Business Program and NAIT Graphic Design Program. When she’s not at her computer, you’ll find her being the chauffeur for her two daughters between school, dance and activities – and even taking a few dance classes herself!
History of Kyle Loranger Design
After freelancing his way through design school, Kyle briefly worked for a local design studio but found that having direct client contact was going to be a better way to go.
He started working from home, but quickly expanded KLD to an office in the Canadian Western Bank Place on 103rd Street and Jasper. A few years later, KLD moved to the vibrant 124th Street in Edmonton and has been there, along with his team, for almost 20 years.
Since opening in 1994, Kyle Loranger Design (KLD) has maintained a keen interest in logo development projects because they bring out the most interesting and original characteristics of clients and their businesses. Logo design has often been the first project that brings clients through the door, leading to bigger projects like marketing materials and website design. Happy clients have led to referrals and long-term relationships sustaining the business over two decades.
As technology has evolved, so has KLD. Kyle and his team started to design for the web in the early 2000’s and followed along while the web industry found its feet. Along the way, KLD built websites using a variety of methods and systems and programming partners. In 2012, all of the web work was taken in-house to gain better control over output and speed up development time. KLD continues to build all websites in-house using the world’s most popular web building platforms – WordPress.
A combination of design skills and coding knowledge gives KLD the ability to provide in-depth design services to clients including: logo design, print design and website design. Kyle and his team stay one step ahead of the rapidly changing digital trends and looks forward to working with you!
