Behind the Jetpack: Kyle’s Passion Project

Senior Designer, Kyle Kendrick, is more than an artist and design pro – he’s also our resident Rocketeer expert and super fan. What started with a toy figurine his dad bought him as a small kid has grown into a lifelong passion, and he has the films, comic books, and memorabilia to prove it.

Recently, Kyle’s passions for design and the jet-packed superhero collided, when he found an online contest calling for custom Rocketeer-themed t-shirt designs. Concepting, hand-sketching, and executing three unique designs in under 72 hours, his submissions received over 700 votes.

“This contest was a great achievement for me,” Kyle said. “The positive reception was part of it, but more than that was putting my own spin on a character I love. I’ve been an artist my whole life, but this was my first attempt to bring my own style to the world of the Rocketeer, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.”
