Hi, I'm Kristen.
You might say I'm a bit of a geek. I've been using a computer since I was 18 months old and designing websites since I was 9 years old.
I graduated from Michigan State University in May 2008 with a B.A. in Professional Writing. I specialized in digital design & rhetoric (that’s a fancy way of saying I can not only design websites, but also write web content).
I'm currently working as a Web Designer in New York City. When I'm not working, I enjoy blogging, roller skating, and spoiling my dog. I'm also a buspreneur for the StartupBus.+ + +
I created flyers, programs, and a large hanging sign for the TEDxMonterey event. I created these items using Adobe Illustrator and InDesign. I also assisted in the creation of the TEDxMonterey website, social media presences, and slidedeck. Photo courtesy of the talented Ryan Gonzalez.+ + +
This small graphic was created using Adobe Illustrator and InDesign. It exercises my knowledge of effective typography as well as consistent design: the graphic is entirely styled in black and white, using only the color red for emphasis.+ + +
