Kristin Rogers Brown joined Bitch Media as Art Director in March, 2010. Though her first love in design was print, she loves finding the right media for the message and believes in keeping a balance of form, function, and delight in all the details of her work whether it’s brand development, packaging, identity, or web design. In addition to designing Bitch, Kristin is a freelance designer, educator, and former vice president of AIGA Portland(American Institute of Graphic Arts). She has worked with sustainable design and design community initiatives for a variety of clients, and has been instrumental in work with AIGA’s SHIFT, sustainability team (established in 2008, now part of their social change project Design for Good), and Exploregon zine project; Worldstudio’s Urban Forest Project; and Design Week Portland.
Kristin serves as an assistant professor at Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA), where she runs the senior studio in the illustration department, moonlights in various communication and collaborative design courses, and mentors thesis students.
Born in Chicagoland, Kristin is a graduate of Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. When not designing, Kristin frequents waterparks, swoons for David Bowie, stalks jewelry designers and illustrators, attempts to sew, and runs or rides her bike around Portland. She is part insomniac, part narcoleptic, and quite possibly the messiest perfectionist ever.
