My name is Kevin Bennington and I am an Associate Professor of Art at Concord University where I take pleasure teaching many of the graphic design courses. I graduated with a B.A. in Graphic Design and Studio Art from Concord University in 2000 and I received my terminal degree of an M.F.A. from Art Institute – Miami International University of Art & Design in 2009. I worked as a graphic designer for 8 years in the PR/Marketing Office and as a full-time instructor/professor at Concord University for the past 14 years.
I am a native of the West Virginia Mountains and I have a strong connection to my environment where I enjoy fishing, hiking and other outdoor activities. As a graphic designer, artist and professor I feel that I have a deep-seated responsibly to pronounce good morals and practices.
My ongoing research includes questions about what influences communication mediums have on viewers or consumers. I am an advocate for promoting clean water practices and trash removal from many of our local streams and rivers.
