Kurt Cruse

Creative Director

Kurt’s laugh can be heard across a crowded room, and he’s often in crowded rooms laughing.

In between instagraming pictures of his food and sharing internet memes with friends, Kurt designs super rad websites. He was the kind of kid who’d put his legos together without the instructions, he’s always been interested in creative challenges.

Kurt studied graphic design back in his Bowling Green State University days, but he has since moved onto the web, where he couldn’t be happier. Consistently focused on learning and being involved in the web community, Kurt is personally invested in every project he works on, without a doubt. He loves Orbit and the amazing clients with whom he’s been able to work; folks like Cabot Cheese, Lou Malnati’s, and Vienna Beef.

Kurt has boundless energy and positivity. He gets way too excited about things like Halloween and watching Saturday morning football.

He can often be spotted riding his red wheeled bicycle around the city.
