About Hooray Creative

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 :) I wondered if you have time to design one card for one of my new, original copies for the Greeting Card challenge. I've sent a message to your Hooray Creative Facebook page as well -- I am "Marie Ag" on Facebook. And, if you have time, I can send you the new original copy via Facebook. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Mariecor :)
