As an art director and graphic designer, Kristin has always worked collaboratively with talented curators, artists, writers, architects, designers, and technicians on a vast range of projects. She is adept at disseminating the core messages and translating them into a myriad of graphic applications that support the user experience. She has shaped the visitor experience and participated in the major re-opening of several New York City cultural institutions. Kristin has also applied her sophisticated understanding of how design can convey knowledge, understanding and promote sensitivity in creating family learning environments in more than 30 Head Start Centers in family shelters in the city.
Graphic design within built environments has become the focus of Kristin’s second passion — teaching. For more than 15 years, she has developed and taught classes that address the intersection of 3D environments and 2D graphics, teaching students in both disciplines thoughtful design and technical skills. Kristin nurtures creative ideas with those around her. She always digs deep into the subject matter to create work that is as effective as it is beautiful.
