Hi, I'm Kristy and I'm the designer behind Hooray Creative! I have a background in fine art and music, but I've spent the majority of my career focused on various areas of design. In no particular order, I love a modern aesthetic, smart typography, geometric patterns, bright pops of color, and beautiful details!

Hi Kristy! Thank you so very much for your kindness and sweet comments. I've always being such great admirer of your work and your support means a lot to me.
Thanks for your comment, Kristy! I've said before how I feel about your work—I want to be you when I grow up! But, I also want to thank you for your support. So many very successful designers don’t take as much time as you do to pass along great advice, like you did with Susan Moyal, but to also share compliments. Doing that is very meaningful to others who greatly admire you and your work. Thank you for being so generous and gracious with your advice and comments. You set the bar high in so many ways. And, of course, congratulations on all of your wins and picks!
Thank you so much for the like on my entry "Delicate Leaves". You have wonderful designs.

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. :)
