✨ digital creative ✨
I’m Krishaun, a digital creative who specializes in branding, graphic & web design, social media management and marketing. I’m known for writing/designing audience capturing and visually pleasing content, documenting events and people with my camera, curating social media feeds and designing websites just because it's fun.
I have 3 years of experience in marketing, 5 years in graphic and web design, 2 years in brand development and 4 years in event management. I'm also a recent graduate! In May 2020, I graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations and a minor in event management.
Now, if you've read this far, you might be wondering why I got into marketing and design.
Well, my journey in content creation began as a middle school student with a knack for writing, photography and design. I started making logos and fliers in Microsoft Word. I also wrote stories (and am proud to say I finished an entire book!) and even was a fashion blogger. While I don't like to harp on the latter too much, that's what genuinely kicked off my passion for creating content for other people.
I soon progressed to travel blogging and vlogging as I attended Stanford's Summer College in 2014 and studied abroad in Germany in 2015. Those experiences greatly helped me as later I served as Publications Co-Chair for Joyce Ivy Foundation, which focuses on the advancement and leadership development of young Midwestern ladies. I co-led a committee of 18 other ladies in developing a digital footprint for JIF.
Since then, I have held a variety of internship and leadership positions in nonprofits, for-profit and municipal organizations, ranging from wedding planning to PR Chair and marketing and communications intern to brand designer.
Combine all of these experiences and you have me: a young professional with a genuine understanding and passion for creating content for a variety of people.
I am currently volunteering at Brenda's Beauty Angels, a nonprofit, as the Director of Social Media for their Board of Directors. In addition, I am freelancing as an illustrator and brand designer.
