I am a creative & energetic Art Director, Designer, and Illustrator.
I currently reside in Denver, Colorado, but am actively looking to relocate to New York City.
Art Direction & Graphic Design
Art Direction is my passion. I love working with brands to create a solid and consistent message through design. I have overseen 3 major corporate logo redesigns and the the subsequent branding changes associated with them.
One of my greatest strengths is user experience and mobile design; I excel at creating interfaces that are both eye-catching and functional.
I have experience in all regions of graphic design, including print, web, mobile, and good old fashioned pencil and paper. I enjoy working on a variety of diverse projects and am an excellent project manager.
I also am an expert digital illustrator specializing in icon, logo, pattern as well as poster design.
I have been an amateur fashion designer since I was 3 years old when I directed my mother to make me a costume of the Ghostbuster's logo for Halloween.
Since then I have become a staple fashion and costume designer in the Denver theatre, burlesque, drag, and fashion community.
In the last year I was a finalist in the 2015 Her Universe Geek Couture Fashion Show at San Diego Comic Con. My dress, titled "The Empire Style's Back!" was recently featured in Star Wars Insider Magazine.
I also was a finalist in the 2015 ArtWear Fort Collins Fashion Week this past October, with one of my pieces opening the headline runway show.
Here's what people are saying about my work:
"Kristi is hands-down the most creative person I know. She has the ability to think outside the box [to develop] an original idea into a masterpiece before deadline and with what appears to be no effort at all."
"She is a triple communications threat: she has phenomenal graphic design skills, unsurpassed creativity, and a great command of social media marketing."
"[Kristi] has a unique ability to conceptualize user experience and incorporate design elements that are both eye-catching and functional."
"She's hardworking, organized, talented, creative, and when you add her wonderful personality to the list, it's the perfect combination for a spectacular employee."
"Kristi is that rarest of marketing professionals who commands both knowledge of the business side of marketing as well as the technical skills needed to create stunning materials."
"If I had the chance, I would hire Kristi again to be a lead designer or a creative director on any web, mobile, print, advertising, photography or creative project."
