Kyle Richer is a graphic designer and illustrator, born and raised in Rhode Island. Using graphic design, illustration, and photography, Kyle strives to combine the three to not only convey important information and messages, but also to explore and reimagine narratives of the mundane that are often overlooked. Heavily influenced by found objects, textures, and vintage ephemera, Kyle's work often meets at the intersection of the past and present. He loves to juxtapose nostalgic imagery with the processes of the digital age to create visual experiences that are both universal in medium, and unique in presentation. His work has been shown in several exhibitions across New England as well as recognized by the Society of Illustrators.
On Craigslist, there is a page titled Missed Connections. This is an online space for people to write to someone they have interacted with, but have since parted ways and feel as though they missed an opportunity at a meaningful connection. These romantic yet anonymous love letters are sometimes short and pretty blunt, but can also be filled with emotional detail that help humanize an otherwise shallow internet narrative. This project combines my love for mundane story telling with my passion for digital collage illustration.
