SO WHO AM I?
I am a designer who enjoys telling brand stories.
WHAT HAVE I DONE?
I have have assumed creative lead roles throughout my career encompassing various areas of design including branding, print, advertising, and web design. I have experience in agency environments, as well as on my own as freelancer. I consider design to be one of the most powerful forms of communication in our fast paced world today. While receiving my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Auburn University, I cultivated a deep appreciation for the creation/design process as a whole, as well as an understanding of layout, color, and typography. I consider myself a creative individual with a unique ability to think outside of the box and deliver solutions to design problems in fresh and unexpected ways.
My biggest accomplishments so far have been the development of Montclair Art Museum’s ( located in Montclair, New Jersey) new brand refresh for their 100 Year Centennial - www.montclairartmuseum.org, as well as the identity for Washington Market Tavern, an upscale hotspot located in NYC’s Tribeca Neighborhood. As a versatile designer, with a love for experimentation, I seek to express any company or organization’s core values and bring their vision to life.
WHAT AM I DOING NOW?
I am currently working as a contract designer and taking on freelance clients of my own, but my goal is to find the perfect full-time design role working alongside other creative minds. Please reach out if you feel we might be a good fit for one another.
What people have to say!
"Christina is a highly creative individual, with an impeccable eye. She has a natural ability to compose content and to create an affect aligned to the creative objectives. The products she creates drive an emotional response simply through the visuals; her ability to frame and crop an image, balance various types of content, and to compose a feeling through the artwork is truly remarkable. During her time at Design Made she was focused on brand creation and brand communication/marketing, and oversaw the creation of a number projects including the brand refresh for Montclair Art Museum (MAM), and the creation of the Washington Market Tavern identity."

The colors and graphics caught the attention of many on our website and by mail as postcards. Additionally, she handled all of the graphics for our biggest event of the year. She is adept with latest Adobe Suite Software. When we had a design issue, Christina was always on top of it and solved it to my satisfaction. She can handle projects of any size and has the artistic talents to impress our clients and business base.
