I’m Krista. I escaped the frozen tundra that is upstate New York to get my education, earning an MFA in design management from Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. As Director of Experience Strategy & Research at Cantina, I bring a diverse, 15-year background in design and higher education to the team. I’ve worked with such brands as MINI, Fidelity, American Greetings, Converse, Aruba, and National Geographic Channel.
I've had the pleasure of speaking at the Design Thinking Conference and Service Design Week where I facilitated workshops focused on user research, service design, and experience design. This winter, I'll be teaching at MassArt in the Design Innovation program
