Hi! I'm Kristy and I'm a designer, originally from Buffalo, NY. I have a background in fine art and music, but furthered my design career while living in NYC and San Francisco before relocating to Philadelphia! In no particular order, I love modern design, smart typography, beautiful details, geometric patterns, bright pops of color, artistic, handmade touches and experimenting with different styles and mediums.

Congrats Kristy!!! A first place award and 100 wins--so awesome!!!! Have a great weekend!

Thanks for the input! I will definitely try manipulating the color more in PS.
Congrats on your big win! I love the contrasts in your art. This may not apply to you but I'm wondering if your art used neon paints. When I scan in my paintings that used fluorescent paints those colors aren't picked up by the scanner. Just wondering if you knew of a way around this. Thanks in advance :)

Hi Kristy, I regret that my design "Half" has the same colorway and dot backer as your entry. If I had known I would have submitted it in different colors. So sorry. It was an innocent coincidence. Suan
your entries are incredible. you are so talented <3
thank you for the note. your designs are so amazingly awesome - i love them all!
Thank you Kristy–you're too kind! You have been on a fire this challenge!! Can't wait to see many of yours in the top 20 :)
Kristy, you have been seriously busy! I just wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed seeing all of your wedding submissions. Truly awesome work!
lol. !thanks... not sure if I should keep it. It cracked me up this morning, b/c my family is polish (wemple is my married name) and my cousin just announced that she is having a big fat polish wedding next year - so I had to do this for her. Not sure if it's one those things that only a few people find amusing though ;)
ps - you are KILLING it in the challenge - seriously awesome!!
thanks so much Kristy x (ps OMW to your Atlanta skyline!?! WOW)
