As a self-taught graphic designer with a degree in advertising from Louisiana State University, Cristina has been able to bring together her love for design and strategic communication to help clients find solutions for their businesses that are both beautiful and effective in the busy marketplace. With over 10 years of experience in design spanning both traditional and digital mediums, Cristina has had the opportunity to fill a variety of roles while continuously expanding on her skillset. Her passion for design stems from her background with local small businesses, and a desire to help real people find real solutions that help them make genuine connections with their clients. At Brew, Cristina has filled the role of art director and front-end web developer, and has worked with clients large and small, local and national, to develop strong creative concepts and stunning visual solutions. Cristina describes both her design aesthetic and approach as simple, modern, and streamlined, and loves being part of the process from concept to completion. Besides design, Cristina is passionate about good food and wine, fashion, beautiful paper goods, and of course, her family – husband Barrett, daughter Lyla, and son Royce!
After graduating, Becky began her career in graphic design, but working directly with clients quickly led her to an offered position in pre-press technology. Realizing how much she enjoyed working with people, Becky decided to pivot to commercial printing sales when she was offered a position with Hederman Brothers Printing in Ridgeland, Mississippi. Becky built and managed a book of business that included servicing accounts such as LSU Athletics, Our Lady of the Lake RMC and Walk-On's Enterprises. After over 20 years of selling print, Becky is excited to return closer to her design roots! She is able to bring what she has learned throughout the years in printing account management to help clients and grow business.
