Kenny Gravillis

Creative Dir
Gravillis Inc

Born and raised in East London, Kenny Gravillis moved to New York City in 1987 to pursue a career in graphic design. He quickly found his niche in the music industry and started out in the art department at Def Jam Records where he met his soon-to-be wife, DeAnna. He designed album packages for the likes of Public Enemy, LL Cool J, and Notorious B.I.G. After five successful years, he made his move to MCA Records where he quickly became VP of Creative Services after relocating to Los Angeles. In 2000, Kenny and his wife/business partner launched Gravillis Inc., a boutique graphic design studio that would seek to visually communicate challenging and thought-provoking ideas for the underestimated savvy consumer. With the state of the music industry declining in 2006, Kenny re-directed his focus towards theatrical and tv campaigns. Gravillis Inc. now predominately works on advertising campaigns for the entertainment industry. Kenny makes time for his wife, two kids, and all things soccer.
