“Kristin is a gifted art director, a smart conceptual thinker, and probably the fastest-working designer I have ever worked with. She has a deep understanding of the consumer perspective and a knack for building brands visually. Her work is by turns warm or sophisticated or confident but always elegant and inspiring. Her take-charge attitude and talent would make her an asset to any agency.” Pam Chozen, Senior Copywriter

“Kristin is one of the most talented designers I have worked with in journalism or advertising. She is also one of the most efficient creatives I have known: Kristin makes meeting impossible deadlines seem effortless. Her ability to produce great designs on short notice is only outdone by her gift for developing smart concepts. For an art director, she even has an uncanny knack for radio. Kristin both exhibits and demands great leadership on every project. She is savvy, insightful and inspired.” Sarah Lipps, Copywriter

“In sixteen years I have on rare occasions come across work that causes me to stop and step back in wonder at the opportunity I have to work with people who take conceptual, sometimes clunky ideas and turn them into something I can only describe as – magic – That’s what you get with Kristin. She is not a technician she is a Designer, she definitely has the skill set but more importantly she has the eye, the heart the – magic – to make you stop and marvel. I’ve seen her crank out an amazing volume of work and take on tasks that would make an intern weep – she handles this business with an aplomb and grace you’d expect of a hardened veteran – no drama just solid work that on occasion will remind you of why you got into this business.” Greg Henderson, SVP Group Account Director Read Less
