Hi! I'm Cristina.
I'm a Chicago-based author, art director, hand-letterer, and illustrator.

What's my story? When it comes down to it, I enjoy making cool things with a purpose. I'm a freelance creative that specializes in creating expressive, upbeat work that connects with you. I'm all about being genuine. My books Hand-Lettering for Everyone and Adult-ish are both available through Penguin Random House.

If you want to work with me (dream team!), grab ice-cream, or maybe even just jam out to Carly Rae Jepsen together, email me!

Some clients I'm proud to have collaborated with: Mc Donald's, Instagram, Nike, Google, Penguin Random House, Billboard Magazine, IBM, Huffington Post, Trunk Club, Babybel, Auntie Anne's Pretzels, Indiana University, Princeton University.
