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 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).+ + +
The 2013 annual report was my first huge print design project while working at Columbia University’s Department of Epidemiology. The department’s annual reports provide a yearly picture of the department’s science, training, translation, and organization.+ + +
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.+ + +
