Fluxar was created as a singular idea fused from the merging of vision and execution. Our combined experience in conceptualizing ideas, design-based problem solving and the complicated artistic process gives us a unique edge is the world of design. To say we only specialize in graphics would be inaccurate to say the least. We don't put many limits on what we can design and the ways we can implement said creations. We can get digital, we can get mixed media, we can get down and we can cut a rug.
Creative Director / Designer
April of ‘74 was the beginning. However, let’s fast forward to ‘94 where Kynan spent most of his time building computers and playing Quake. When ‘97 hit, Kynan formed an ISP and hosting company called Subsonic, which later became Fluxar.
A short time later, Studio Stasis a recording studio was created by Kynan and his longtime friend, Josh Miller. Kynan engineered and produced many artists alongside of Josh in the early 2000’s. Continuing to evolve and embrace his art and design mindset, Fluxar was created (Aeon Flux and Pixar make Fluxar). 2005 and forward, Fluxar has been a juggernaut in the design scene.
As an architect of design, Kynan focuses his time as the Creative Director of Fluxar. His areas of expertise are a complex road map of tech meets design. Home theater design, industrial design, interior design, are just a few areas of expertise he holds in his deck.
Some of the coolest projects he has worked on include Star Trek the Tour, Titanic Movie Tour, Total Recall Online, Orgy and Julien-k music projects, Planet Michael Jackson, Bogner Amplification, Beryll Sunglasses, Project Runway, Buck Owens family of projects, and of course working with legendary record producer Tim Palmer.
Kynan finds enjoyment in pyrotechnics, gaming, art, collecting wine, motorcycles, guitars, boating, and high-fidelity audio. Having a heart full of art, Kynan created the art label Modern Gigi with his long time friend and artist Johnny Ramos.
Living now in beautiful Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Kynan spends his free time hanging out with his wife Alycia and their 3 children.

Dane is what you might call a modern renaissance man. He employs in his artistic arsenal the ability for design, illustration, typography, painting, music production, photography, video production and just about any other creative method to get the job done. Dane is also a musician who writes and records his own music under the name Baron Minker. His years of designing show posters and album art for bands and traditional design teachings added even more artistry to the FLUXAR umbrella and continues to today.
Proudest Achievement: I’ve had the honor of designing some beautiful concert posters for some of my favorite musicians and bands including Tame Impala, of Montreal and Explosions in the Sky.

Director of Operations
Yes, that's a real typewriter Alycia is using, one handed. That's how it's done at Fluxar Studios. We also listen to our music on 8 track tapes and record players, just because we are cool that way.
Alycia is the epoxy of Fluxar, she holds everything and everybody together, tightly. Bookkeeping, billing, customer relations, taxes, are just a few of the tasks she deals with. Without Alycia, nobody would be billed or paid, she keeps the blood flowing.
Some of the guns in her holster include Quickbooks Enterprise, Adobe Suite, Microsoft Word, and a master of Excel. You think you know spreadsheets? You don't!
In the old days she was knighted the First Lady of Fluxar, and she holds that same title today.
The man known as Matt, the master Network Administrator/ Engineer. You see that rack behind him? It represents his comfortable chaos ridden world. This guy knows everything about everything when it comes to hardware and software. He is the architect of the Fluxar help desk system, it's super fast internal network, IP telephone system, in house Windows servers, and every little technology based gadget we all use.
He lives, eats, and breaths technology. Microsoft Certified guru is just one of the many badges of honor he sports on his uniform. Cisco doesn't scare Matt, SQL doesn't scare Matt, come to think of it, nothing scares Matt. If it breaks, all he has to do is think about it and it’s fixed.
If you take note of the nice egg shape of his dome, everything will start to become clear. Matt Evans is truly an Egghead, and not one to be challenged. He will even kick your ass at your favorite first person shooter!
