"An absolute professional .... From cover design to editorial layout to print and web campaign design to promotional materials and media kits, Kristin routinely over-delivered, all-the-while under constant week-to-week deadline pressure." -- Jim Cohen, Associate Publisher, Detroit Metro Times
"She has always had the 'first one in, last one out' kind of attitude. I was always blown away by her tireless work ethic, incredible multitasking skills and time management. I have also never seen anyone handle the amount of pressure she was consistently under with such grace.'
-- Haimanti Basu, Graphic Designer, Detroit Metro Times
I am a graphic designer with 6+ years of professional experience, including managerial experience. My greatest strengths include editorial layout, print and digital ad design, and infographics.
Colleagues know me as someone eager to work and collaborate to find a creative solution to a design problem, as well as an efficient hard worker and multitasker who handles stressful work situations with grace, patience, and professionalism. Because I know firsthand the importance of meeting a deadline, I always have the next steps of a project in the front of my mind, providing a clearer picture of my individual responsibilities, as well as those of my team as a whole.
I recently relocated from Detroit to New York City, and I am currently pursuing new opportunities in the graphic design field. I especially hope to one day expand my existing skill set to include package design, motion graphics, and/or UI/UX.
When I'm not designing, you can bet I'm either top-rope climbing, singing in the community choir, performing culinary experiments in my tiny kitchen, or throwing some (not very heavy) weights around at Planet Fitness.
