Hi! I'm Kristy and I'm a designer, originally from Buffalo, NY - currently based in Philadelphia! I have a background in fine art and music, but furthered my design career while living in NYC and San Francisco. In no particular order, I love modern design, smart typography, geometric patterns, bright pops of color, and beautiful details!

Hi Kristy, thanks for liking forested frieze. A question if you have a minute: do you think the green background contrast with the gold is a bit much for the business holiday species? Would gold on white be more suitable?

Hey Kristy! Just a quick question ... did you paint/illustrate your Painterly Pine with the iPad Pro and Apple pencil or did you use real paints and scan in? Just curious because I've been dying to get the iPad Pro and Apple pencil and need more excuses to push me to get those. :)
