Miles Khan | Portfolio ‘18

Hey there, glad you could finally make it,



Allow me to reintroduce myself... My name is Miles Khan and I am a well rounded, integrated Graphic Designer and Printmaker.
Graduating in 2014 with multiple awards and a BaHons in Graphic Design I have had the privilege of working across multiple creative disciplines that has allowed me to become a fully profficient, integrated designer. As well as being highly adept in print, type and illustration I am also a well established curator, contemporary artist and printmaker working with numerous galleries, exhibiting at various group shows and art fairs. 

With a proven, competent background in carpentry, framing, designing, artworking, photographing, managing and curating to name a few, I have an extremely versatile set of skills that I can apply to a number of projects. I possess a set of technical abilities that can allow me to see a concept develop and manifest itself in a multitude of outcomes from idea to finish, whether it be tactile or digital.

Very passionate about sustainable foods and exploring new methods and recipes in the culinary arts.

Keen entomologist and collector of exotic pets. Over the years have had in my care a handfull of praying mantis’, a couple snakes, a lizard and a few tarantula’s.

I find the time wherever possible to balance a healthy diet with a good workout at the gym.

I am often attending private views and enjoy going to art shows and gallery openings wherever possible.

I have a combined love for Lomographic light leaking aesthetics and modernist architecture and every few months like to go out and do a recreational photoshoot.

I have profound appreciation for Astrology, particle theory and the uncharted phenomenon behind dark matter and our inexplicably expanding universe.
