Kenn Compton spent his formative years in Asheville, NC. In the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains he experienced a rich educational environment and so was able to graduate from high school in only four years. Growing up surrounded by craftsmen, storytellers and folk artists profoundly influenced his creative growth. In only his second year of formal education, one of Kenn's illustrations took 1st place in the prestigious Biltmore Elementary School PTA Invitational. That inspired the drawing, entitled “Yellow Ducky,” and is now part of the permanent collection of his mother. Other original artwork, remnants of moderately unsuccessful career as a children's book creator, can be found in the collections of Keene State College and the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.
Kenn Compton is a 1976 graduate of the School of Design, NCSU, where he earned his Bachelor of Environmental Design/Product Design/Visual Design Option, or, BVD. In the spring of 2005, Kenn Compton received his Masters in Graphic Design from SCAD. During his 30 + years as a graphic designer, Kenn has done time in some of the more important creative groups in the city, including 18 years at Duke Energy, where he eventually worked his way up to the much-envied role of International Logo Cop. From there he transitioned to the Chair of CPCC's Advertising + Graphic Design program.
