Designer of New and Old Media
Photographer and Pixel Minder
205-1153 Queen St. W. Toronto
I’m a designer of new and old media, and an habitual photographer.
I’ve been based in Toronto since being in the Photo/Electric Arts program at OCA (now OCAD) in the 80s. I went to public school in Saskatoon in the 70s.
New Media: I design user experiences for digital products. I’ve been doing this for more than twenty years. You can find me on LinkedIn.
Old Media: I made a children’s book with my cousin and am finishing the second one. I’m slowly working on book ideas related to my photo projects. I can draw.
From 1989 to 1997 I was a partner in Mackerel, one of Toronto’s first interactive media shops.
Here is a scrapbook from one of our more interesting projects Echo Lake.
At the Smackerel site: I’ve posted an article about some of our early work and the work that inspired it: When Multimedia Was Black and White.
Read the Step-by-Step Magazine article about The Mackerel Stack, the interactive promo that made our rep.
Then you can read the obituary, Mackerel: Burying the Fish by Cory Doctorow.
The Caped Kitty and Friends Store
Feline inspired designs. By me.
Buying my products pays for quality cat content to be added to the internet. What could be wrong with that? Obey Toby.

The site was once entirely hand-built but now it’s kind of a real blog. It’s a bunch of blogs. It’s a frankenblog!
Current version of this page launched end of summer 2010 but was a few years in the making. It looks almost exactly like previous version with posts now served up by Blogger (archived at kevinsteeleland.blogspot.com).
The oldest page on this web site is:
500 Years of Bembo (1996)
