Kristen Drozdowski is a Michigan-based designer splitting her time between freelance and working for Rock Paper Scissors. I found Kristen first through her lettering work, and appreciate how this hand-drawn aesthetic winds its way through her other designs—without making her portfolio feel homogenous. This is a tough balance to strike: a strong style and the ability to explore.
What I love about posters is that the designer often gets a chance to just go nuts and do whatever strikes their fancy. You can see this joyful quality in Kristen’s poster work:
Be sure to check out Kristen’s illustrations—especially this Landscape Collage series—or browse her shop for cheerful stationery. Still speculating how many crystals one must collect before mentioning in a bio, “I live in Ypsilanti with my boyfriend, three black cats and a collection of crystals.”
