AUBURN UNIVERSITY, SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL + GRAPHIC DESIGN

Kristen Harlin grew up in Jacksonville FL. Her approach to design is empirical and reflects a passion for typography, research, and thinking both two and three-dimensionally. She believes strong, process oriented design leads to effective communication. She also enjoys exploring the connection between science/mathematics and design, and is a firm believer in the power of grid systems. In the future, Kristen hopes to travel, further her education, and explore photography as well as digital media. Upon graduation in May, Kristen will return to Florida to work towards a career as an art director in packaging and branding.
