You're in great hands! With 10+ years in creative for marketing, advertising & communications, I strategize and art direct for consistency across channels and touch points. I'm particularly fond of experiential marketing projects and led on the launch of two start-ups, then spent 5 years as Art Director of Core77's retail brand Hand-Eye Supply - a globally recognized 'hardware store for Designers & Makers'. Being a conceptual left and right brain design-thinker with scope, I naturally think outside the box and bring in new leads through projects that engage the public. I always have a foot out in the world volunteering and am an educator who career coaches women in creative and speaks at colleges. My path goes something like this; Journalist > Editorial Photographer > Brand Photo Director > Brand Art Director > part of your team!
"Christine's ability to translate a creative brief into something conceptual, iconic, and beautiful is truly amazing. I've had the pleasure of working with her on both commissioned and self-initiated projects with varying team sizes, budgets, and timelines — I'm always confident in the finished product when she is in charge."
"Professionally, Christine is highly regarded. She's a great collaborator and a strong conceptual thinker. She can work with a broad range of subject matter -- you can count on Christine."
"She has the ability to see things from a broad perspective and then make sure every aspect is carried out in detail to support the overall goal."
"I've been pleased to hire her as a consultant and to work with her as a client. The relationship has always been cordial, friendly, collaborative, creative, open, and understanding. Christine is the type of person that I would choose to work with every time."
~ James Owen | Industrial Designer
"I would recommend her for any job where creativity is of the utmost importance and when you need the job done right the first time."
"Christine helped me in every way when given the task of aiding the design team to create a visually compelling visual merchandising narrative for Hand Eye Supply. Her skillful lighting and creative direction helped highlight the product in every way."
