About

Hello!

My name is Chrissie. I am a designer, illustrator, and animator who lives and works in beautiful Raleigh, North Carolina.

I have a Master of Art + Design with a concentration in animation and interactive design (2014) and a Bachelor of Graphic Design (2008) from the College of Design at NC State University.

I am a creative, self-motivated designer with a passion for excelling in my craft, building strong relationships, and creating thoughtful, beautiful experiences. My favorite part about being a designer is being able to inform, teach, entertain and surprise, and share meaningful stories about inspiring people and the world around us.

Other passions include making things, spending time outside with my family, climbing, hiking, drawing, sewing, learning, giving back to my community, and eating good food with my favorite people.
