get to know kristen steinhardt…
hello? are you there?
yes i am here!
we have a few questions for you to get to know you better.
Sure thing, how can i help you?
how did you get into design?
art & DESIGN has always fascinated me since i was a little kid. being so fortunate to live just miles away from the metropolitian museum of art in new york city exposed me to the diverse amount of incredible art there is in the world from so many amazing cultures. After understanding my deep attraction to the art world, i took several art history classes in school which further led to my discovery of graphic design.
what do you like about design?
design is everywhere we go, we are exposed to it in so many ways every day. i was fascinated by how powerful visual communication and strategic marketing can be in the world. it can change opinions, fabricate ideas, create controversial thoughts, inspire someone…its a powerful way to communicate as a person or as a brand.
how would you describe your style of design?
My style of design is like a blend of complex thoughts simplified - by using elements of design as symbols to represent those ideas. i carefully chose typography, colors, shapes and elements to communicate a message. i have a deep relationship with clean, contrasting whites, they let the additional elements speak for themselves.
what was your favorite job?
i’ve had many jobs, i took one year off of college to work for a start-up aerospace company. it was one of the most interesting jobs i had. one day i would be designing investment decks, another day in a helicopter doing aerial photography, the next day inviting astronauts to come to a pr event i was planning, the next day back in the office planning a trade show for the worlds largest air show. at that company, i was also so lucky to work with such incredible people from around the world.
