Krista Van Guilder is a designer, art director, and front-end developer with UX/UI skills and has over 16 years of professional experience in both the traditional print and interactive industries in both agency and in-house environments. She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications Media and a Master of Arts in Graphic Design from the New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University.

Krista has worked on projects from many different industries, but has always focused on listening to the client, understanding the audience, and practicing good design. No matter what the media—identity, brochures, stationery, mobile, applications, or web sites—Krista can design a successful custom solution. Her passion lies in generating concepts and following them through entire campaigns while ensuring that all touch points effectively promote the brand.

When she is not at her desk designing, Krista can be found playing guitar in a heavy rock band or hanging out in her kitchen with her husband Chris and their cat Firenze who has an addiction to boxes of all sizes.
