Who I Am

My name is Kristofer (Kris) Hansen. I am a Graphic Designer with over 17 years of practical experience. I started my career in Spokane at a well known weekly shopper, worked for a newspaper, an advertising agency, and freelanced for a few magazines. I have had my designs in magazines, on billboards and on television.

I take great pride in my creativity. I listen to my clients wants and can meet their budget needs, no matter the size of said budget. I am confident that you will be pleased by my ability to create original graphic designs and produce work of all types that captures the individual brand identity. I use my skills and experience to deliver projects on schedule while meeting my own high standards.

Billboards to business cards, I have done it all. I have worked with clients such as Microsoft, Vern Fonk Insurance, Hometown Values, Community Shopper Magazine. GolfToday Northwest, Dealer Marketing Magazine, Asemblon, Kings Mattress, Kodiak Lodge, Mirage Pool & Spa, Shumate Motorsports, Parker-Messana, LION New Media, Rairdon Auto Group, Larson Automotive Group, and various freelance clients.

I have outstanding computer knowledge. I am very skilled in Adobe Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, InDesign CC, Acrobat DC, Microsoft Office 365 and various FTP applications. I have used these programs on both Mac and PC. I am very efficient and utilize quick keys in all graphic programs. I am very comfortable working and playing on a computer.

As an employee I am honest and have an excellent work ethic and I do not miss deadlines—EVER! I enjoy a challenge and solving problems. In two previous working environments, I was able to implement new programming and typography to bring their antiquated systems into the current era. I do things without having to be asked so I took it upon myself to learn how to use these programs and implement them into the workflow. I am always willing to give extra time and effort and I work well with a team.Kth_Sig_0914_White
