Hello!

I’m Kristy mapp

UX, Product, & Visual Designer

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.

— Angelique Little

Content Design Lead, Dropbox

Kristy has an excellent creative mind with a passion to ensure mission, vision, and values alignment. She has the ability to translate difficult conceptual ideas into meaningful, professional works of art.

— Charles Pulliam

CEO & Founder, Solushiens

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.
