Hey! I’m Kristen — a graphic designer and illustrator based in Portland, OR. I graduated from San Francisco State University with a BS in Visual Communication Design in 2015, and have been conjuring up design solutions for a variety of clients ever since. I work alongside my husband and sister-in-law at our tiny creative agency, Sunnyside Creative Co. — half based in Oregon, half in California. My favorite coworker is my cat, Mary Berry, who tends to make her way into my for-fun illustrations.

Shoot me a message — let’s figure out a way to work together!
