Creative director, graphic designer, educator. Department Head of Graphic Design at PNCA.
For the past decade, Kristin has used her background as an award-winning editorial art director to design meaningful experiences, publications, and brand strategies across media. She's now an associate professor, and heads up the Graphic Design department at PNCA. Kristin spent 2010-2018 at Bitch Media, an independent media organization whose mission is to provide and encourage an engaged, thoughtful feminist response to mainstream media and pop culture. Before that, she headed up a global communication design team for consulting firm Oliver Wyman, developing an in-house studio responsible for brand identity and design for learning. Kristin now serves on the board of Visible Alliance, has been on the board of AIGA Portland, and worked with Design Week Portland on the organizing team in 2012-13.
Her work with nonprofits and values-driven organizations proves that thoughtful design drives engagement, builds community, and makes a difference in people's lives.
