— About

Kristina is a graphic designer, illustrator and art director. She studied graphic design in Toronto, Canada and has worked in the field since 2011. After an internship at Toronto’s Concrete, she got her feet wet at SidLee as a Jr. Designer. In 2012, she joined the design team at Leo Burnett's Toronto office. In 2013 they took the Young Guns Design Agency of the Year, and were consecutively named Design Studio of the Year by the ADCC (2013-2016). After close to 5 years at Leo Burnett, Kristina decided to relocate to Seattle, Washington — where she has joined Amazon as a Senior Brand Designer. She has worked on numerous large scale brands, start-up businesses, and smaller more intimate projects as well.
