Kirk Mueller is a humanist interested in the intersection of technology and design. He’s principal and digital design director at Studio Mercury where he helps brands actualize small to large scale projects.

While pursuing his Masters at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), he developed a healthy skepticism of the role of technology in our lives. He believes the integration of technology should be purposeful and well thought out and applies this ethos to his work.

Sometimes when he’s tired of looking at the screen, you can find Kirk hand-printing wallpaper or hacking Nintendo cartridges. Working with his hands helps fuel his inner maker.

He currently lives and works in New York City with his twin brother, Nate.
