✨ 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 4 years of experience in marketing, 6 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. I'm currently working on my M.A. in Mass Communication with a specialization in Digital Strategy.
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 the marketing coordinator at Glacier Hills Senior Living Community in Ann Arbor, MI. I head the marketing and relocation process there. I also freelance as an illustrator and brand designer. If you are interested in working with me, please get in touch with me via email or the form on my contact page.
