well, hi there

i’m kristen

I’m a graphic designer slash artistic mind slash significant perfectionist who’s truly passionate about beautiful aesthetics. I’m best known for my often earthy, always moody colour palettes, minimalist design tendencies and the ability to be entirely consumed by a creative idea.

FUN FACT: I have a fondness for adopting leafy friends with little room to house them and enjoy torturing myself with late night true crime documentaries.

Recent work



I recently chose Kristen to help me with my business rebrand... I have been blown away by her talent and professionalism!

She took the time to understand my business and its needs, and absolutely nailed my brief. The logo package was incredibly comprehensive with lots of variations, and all work was delivered extremely promptly. Highly recommended!
