Kristy mapp

Design Thinker – UX, Product, & Visual Design
Enterprise Design Thinking Practitioner

We have a small team, so I have come to depend on how well she understands the business priorities, manages her own time, and stays on track. She presents her work professionally and comprehensively, with a high level of confidence. I have worked with few people who are as able as Kristy to come up with ideas, mock them up, and then design down to the last detail.

We encountered many potentially limiting factors along the way that required a combination of critical analysis and creative, budget-friendly solutions to reach our objectives. Kristy was a key player in these situations, helping us navigate the challenges while also staying aligned with the mission and values of the organization.
