Kristin Riger

Who I am

I am equal parts graphic designer,
self-deprecating Midwesterner,
liberal, adventure-seeking Californian,
constant learner of the unfamiliar,
devoted mother, wife, sister, friend.

It’s nice to meet you.

My work explores the relationship of craft, research, strategy, and visual storytelling to create emotionally meaningful experiences for people. I am most passionate about designing for the people who aren't normally designed for. Currently, I do this at, a global nonprofit design studio. designs products, services, and programs that address poverty and inequality in communities around the world.

I like to geek out on the color palettes of places, on bold, beautiful serifs, on the best types of film to buy for my old hipster film cameras, and where the best pizza in any city is served. Drop me a line at
