I have a BFA in Game Art & Design. I'm in love with traditional media and adore doing portraits. I'm pretty good at designing print media (business cards, brochures, post cards, etc) and despite my negative experience at my last job, I at least walked away with a new found love for printing.
I'm also really passionate about clean, effective design. I love developing logos and professional images. I have done several webpages and web sites, too.
I'm a pro-bono web admin for a Bradenton/Sarasota FL non-profit drug recovery organization, Twitch's Transitional Recovery Homes (ttrh.org) where I keep the website updated, run the blog, and keep up with social media for the organization's founder. I am in-progress on the logo redesign for TTRH.
Prior to that, I worked with another local FL non-profit, an animal rescue called Rescuing Unwanted Friendly Fidos (ruff.petfinder.com). I created a logo for the organization and redesigned the web page - the founder is incredibly busy, however, and hasn't been able to update the page. I have the work hosted here: kristinbowles.com/testsite/RUFF/
My Dream Job? Would be to keep doing things like this, but for companies or individuals who would put me on a payroll. I only do pro-bono for non-profits, because I don't want to stagnate and I believe in the power of generosity and charity.
