Hi there, my name is Christa Miesner,
and I am a product designer

About

I have 9 years of experience in print, web, and marketing design. I’m excited about using bold color and creating clear cohesive designs. My expertise is in whimsical fun design for various mediums. I am always willing to take on new challenges and learn new techniques and strategies. I have experience managing a team and coordinating with multiple departments to produce a cohesive product. Designing is my passion and I am always looking for fun new ways to make use of my skills. No matter how much I learn I know there is always more to learn from people with different experiences to my own. 

When I am not designing I like to spend my time enjoying the outdoors with travel or local hiking. I use illustration and painting as another form of creative outlet and can often be found trying some new arts and crafts.
