I’m thrilled to introduce you guys to Kristen, who just joined us last week at CPHQ!
We’d only just begun thinking about hiring someone and writing a job description before the holidays when Kristen emailed us. Her skills and background were a great match, but what may have clinched the deal is discovering that she too has a grey cat named Basil.
(That’s Kristen’s Basil on the left and ours on the right.)
Kristen studied fashion design at FIDM and has worked doing fashion design, fashion illustration, and designing hand knits. Like everyone else at CP, she loves cats and coffee.
Kristen is going to be focused on helping design and develop new patterns. She’ll be working on everything from the initial design and sketching, all the way through creating instructions and doing layouts.
Since she’ll be working on this sort of nitty gritty behind the scenes magic, I’ll still be doing the blogging around these parts (and still working on patterns myself, of course). Having her help means we can explore all kinds of new ideas, though, which I am extremely excited about. I think you guys will love some of the stuff we have planned for the rest of this year.
Please welcome Kristen aboard!
