Kristi is an award-winning designer who started her creative career in web design in 1999, and branched into print + publications design in 2003. She currently calls Works Progress Design home, using her powers of good design, management savvy, and tech know-how as a force for good in the business and non-profit sectors.
In a previous life, Kristi used her knack for branding and web design to whip a diverse portfolio of web and mobile applications into shape as a Designer + User Experience Engineer. During the five years prior, she honed her skills at herding cats and set up camp at a local association management company where she managed all advertising, marketing, social media, print and web projects for several in-house companies and international, national, regional, and local non-profit associations. Kristi secured a pretty piece of paper many moons ago that says she has an AAS in Information Systems Technology with a specialization in the Internet/Web Development.
She spends her spare time helping her fellow designers change the local creative landscape as Immediate Past President of AIGA Hampton Roads, a local chapter of the professional association for design, and working with Tidewater Community College’s Workforce Development Center and the Academy for NonProfit Excellence to develop inspiring training seminars on a wide variety of design, web, and tech topics for local non-profits and other organizations.
