Hi, I'm Kristina. I am an evolving designer, business owner and backyard film curator.
Originally from Minnesota, I moved to the Bay Area after college for some sunshine and thrills. After six years working in non-profit admin, I left my job in hopes of finding more creative work. 2009 wasn't the best time to be switching career paths, so much of that sought after creativity was found not only by immersing myself in Adobe products, but also through the many ways in which I found and created work for myself. By 2011, I started screenprinting my own line of kitchen towels, napkins and kids apparel and selling them through my business, Tina Produce. Beyond my wildest dreams, Anthropologie picked up four of my first five designs for their summer 2013 inventory. Now, I have various small business and craft/handmade industry knowledge, but with all the admin it takes to run a business, I find myself seeking more creative work opportunities again. So for now, I'm working as a production artist at Minted, expanding my Adobe Creative Suite skills and keeping my eyes stimulated on plenty of unique crowd-sourced designs. It has been so great gaining more specific design skills within a collaborative environment that promotes independent artists. When I'm not busy working 9-5 or slinging home decor, I love curating classic (mostly 80's) films alongside the fire pit of my beautiful Oakland backyard.
