10+ years working in creative marketing on art direction, brand strategy, design, production, creative operations & communications, your project is in great hands! I strategize 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 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 about 'change' topics at colleges. My path goes something like this; Journalist > Editorial Photographer > Brand Photo Director > Brand Art Director > Creative Operations > leading 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."
"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."
