SHILLINGTON SCHOOL OF GRAPHIC DESIGN GRAPHIC DESIGN COURSE

Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, Kristin Pasating moved up and down the West Coast living in Portland and Seattle before moving back to San Francisco in 2009. As a natural communicator and problem solver, her interest in design started at a young age. Even as a kid, she was observant of things like typography and color and how they were used together in the world around her. Kristin loves that design is everywhere, whether you’re aware of it or not. She studied at Academy of Art in San Francisco before deciding to take the plunge and move across the country. While studying at Shillington School in New York City, one of the institution’s six global campuses, she honed her skills and developed her artistic perspective. With each project, she strives to do what she does best; take risks and have fun. Shortly after graduating from Shillington, Kristin secured her first design job at a bespoke magazine and book publishing studio.
