Strictly Business ( is excited to have Devan Kirkpatrick on board as the magazine’s new Art Director. As the Art Director, Devan will be responsible for paginating the magazine, designing advertisements and visual elements, managing press relations and quality control and updating online and digital media presences.

Devan and his family moved from Wichita, Kansas; they relocated to the Lincoln area after his wife, Ciera, began her career at the University of Nebraska as an Assistant Professor in the College of Journalism. Devan and Ciera have an active three-year-old son named Dysen and an equally energetic pet dog named Winston. Aside from his passion as a graphic designer, Devan enjoys watching and playing sports, hosting board game nights and grilling for guests. Currently, Devan is growing his hair out to donate it to Children with Hair Loss, which will be his third time.

“I am excited to be a member of the Strictly Business team and look forward to the creative endeavors that I will encounter in the future as the Art Director.”
