Hello, I’m Cristen with a C!
I was raised in Pittsburgh, PA, by a fearless single mom who taught me to be independent, determined, and communicative. When I’m not creating brilliantly bold and colorful design, you can find me reading (or purchasing books, a hobby in and of itself) or chilling with my sweet pup, Charlotte, watching a cheesy romcom.
I’m passionate about design solutions that are bold and energetic. Whether building a brand identity from scratch or designing a book, I love to add my colorful flair to any project. You may not know that research (while not as glamorous as the kick-ass design I do) is a critical part of any of my processes, so you can walk away with a successful visual identity that is well researched and meticulously crafted.
I am proud to say that I graduated Magna Cum Laude at Temple University, where I got my Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic and interactive design at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture (I know it’s a mouthful). My rigorous coursework made me a skilled designer whose thorough with type, and thoughtful with revision.
