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.
If you want someone passionate and easy to work with, let’s get in touch! I’d love to work together or make a connection! Find me on Instagram @cristenwithac, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
