My name is Kevin Hoffman, I am an Industrial Designer currently working in San Francisco, CA. Design is my playground. Initially inspired by basketball and footwear, I developed a versatile skill set applicable to all categories of Industrial Design. I am thankful for all the experiences and relationships I have aquired through design and look forward to what the future holds.
