SESSIONS COLLEGE FOR PROFESSIONAL DESIGN
Christin is a freelance graphic designer with a passion for working with small businesses to build and perfect their brand identities. She has just recently graduated with an AOS in Graphic Design from Sessions College but has been an artist at heart since birth. Packaging design and custom illustrations are among some of the projects she finds most exciting to work on! She is currently working on launching her own design business, Atomic Creative. In the past, she owned Red Bird Revivals, a custom furniture restoration and home décor business. In her free time, you can find her practicing watercolor painting, drawing, sewing, having in-depth (mostly one-sided) conversations with her two dogs, or hanging out in the garage doing woodworking projects with her husband.
