Kristina is a Graphic Designer born and raised in San Diego. She graduated with honors from The Art Institute of CA – San Diego in 2011 with a Bachelors degree of Science in Graphic Design as well as an Associates degree of Science in Advertising. While attending The Art Institute she also served as the President of the student Ad Club and was also involved with the local chapters of AIGA and AAF.

Shortly after graduation she began freelancing for clients such as REEF, ViTRO and Sunbelt Publications, Inc. After freelancing for a few years she began working full-time for Petco Animal Supplies in the Visual Merchandising department as a Sr. Designer. There she designed and prepared large-scale store signage for both Petco and Unleashed by Petco. One of her primary rolls was designing all endcap signage. She served as the Art Director for those photo shoots and was responsible for selecting all animal (and human!) talent as well as the photo shoot locations.

Now Kristina is a full-time mommy and is back to freelancing from home; the best of both worlds!
