Kristie Hansen-Kemp – Graphic Designer, Artist, Owner

The story goes that I picked up a crayon at the age of two and never stopped drawing. I earned my BFA in Graphic Design, Cum Laude, from the University of Washington. Design brought me to San Francisco, where I began my career working in award-winning design firms. I’ve blended my love of drawing and painting with my love of design for over 25 years.

I launched Hansen-Kemp Design in 2003 as a boutique graphic design studio. Since then, I’ve forged relationships with a variety of businesses and non-profits.
A love of great design, art, and getting the message across for my clients inspires and fuels my designs. I manage and coordinate design projects from concept through completion while consistently meeting deadlines and budgets. I help my clients to achieve success through solid design practices.

I’m lucky enough to be a published designer and have won numerous national and international design awards.
