Cristina is a visual storyteller.

Whether it is a branding, philanthropic, or personal story, the creative process is the same, and it begins with carefully listening to her client's objectives and ends with concise, thought-provoking execution.

Cristina is an extremely versatile designer, having worked for organizations of all types and sizes, from small boutique agencies to corporate powerhouses. She enjoys brainstorming sessions and big-picture-thinking, but also appreciates the beauty of carefully considered details, like the elegance of carefully kerned typography.

As a photographer and video producer, Cristina helps organizations stand out with a simple but powerful tool: a well-told story. Using photography, video and audio interviews, Cristina seeks out the defining moments that allow an authentic and engaging story to shine through.
