Hi, my name is Steven Klock
I have been working as a graphic designer and artist for over 25 years and have been involved in some form of art since I was young. I realized at an early age, my talents in art, drawing, and painting, and so decided to follow a career as an artist.
In 1992, I began studies at the Art Institute of Seattle with a focus on graphic design, but my education also included advertising and illustration. I graduated from the Art Institute of Seattle in 1994 from the Visual Communications program. Following graduation, I worked in print shops for several years, doing everything from bindery and production to both traditional and digital pre-press printing. During this time, I continued on improvement of both my graphics and fine art skills and had several art exhibitions in various venues of downtown Seattle.
In 1996, I landed a Graphics position at a 24-hour cable television news station, NorthWest Cable News (an affiliate of Belo/NBC). And, over the years I've further gained expertise in design, art,  print and web production. My experience has led me through several opportunities, including a position as an in-house graphic designer for the prestigious Bellevue Club in Bellevue, WA through the early 2000s.
In mid-2007, I moved with my wife and kids from beautiful, albeit cloudy, Seattle to sunny Southern California for better job opportunities, where I landed a position as Sr. Graphic Designer. In 2009, while working as a full-time designer, I worked to achieve a Bachelor's Degree in Web and Interactive Media from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh's Online Division, which I completed in September of 2013. Because of the added education in not only web design, but photography and video, the degree has helped to raise my experience level and my present title to Sr. Multimedia Designer, for Bourns, Inc. in Riverside, CA.
