köllab was founded in the fall of 2020 by Tyler Kicera, the former VP, Head of Creative at TAIT, a global leader in the live event and entertainment technology space. Trained as an architect, Tyler spent twelve years working for TAIT, where he held various design, management and leadership roles. In that time, Tyler helped to deliver hundreds of projects for some of the worlds most recognizable brands, artists, architects and designers.
Tyler possess a unique, world-class set of skills and experience. Beginning his career as a mechanical designer, Tyler eventually developed and took on the role of Director of Design, running the TAIT’s thirty-person mechanical design team. Recognizing his mechanical design expertise, coupled with his creative background could benefit the company more broadly, Tyler took on a hybrid design / business development role. Most recently, as the VP, Head of Creative, Tyler ran a new venture at TAIT which combined his diverse experience to develop and manage projects in new markets.
In early 2020, COVID changed the world, and Tyler saw an opportunity to satisfy his long standing desire to venture out on his own. Leveraging his skills, experience and elite network, Tyler launched köllab in late 2020.
