Kevin Hawley is a Master Instructor in the Zimmerman School of Advertising & Mass Communications. His areas of interest include advertising creativity and graphic design. Kevin is a recipient of the USF Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Award, although he believes the outstanding part refers to the undergraduates, not his teaching. Kevin was instrumental in establishing the Certificate in Visualization & Design, an interdisciplinary undergraduate program offered in collaboration with the School of Art & Art History, and continues to supervise the Certificate for the Zimmerman School. Prior to his teaching career, Kevin spent twenty-five years in the advertising industry as a copywriter, art director, designer and creative director. He created campaigns for clients such as IBM, McDonald’s, NAPA Auto Parts, Visit Florida, Owens Corning, Cooper Tire and Tim Hortons. He remains current in the industry as a creative consultant for various agencies and clients, as well as schools and departments within USF. When not working, Kevin may be found cycling, kayaking or riding his motorbike. Although, he does those things so he can’t be found.
