Portfolio

My name is Kristina and I have almost 15 years experience in graphic design and multimedia work.

I have an AA in Digital Media and a BA in Communications.

When you hire me for a project, you aren’t just getting my design skills but you get my conceptual ideas for problem solving as well. I am interested in designing for a variety of genres and themes. I like to try out new ideas and styles all the while keeping an eye on the latest trends. Great communication is very important to me and I thrive in collaborations.

I hope to be able to work with you soon.


PAST CLIENTS


I have mostly done design work for items like bookmarks and stickers but I have recently started living my dream of being a book cover designer. Examples of what I can do can be found on HERE.

Below are some designs I’ve done for different projects over the years. If you have any questions or would like to see some more of my work, don’t hesitate to email me!


Client Reviews:

“Kristina’s work is unique and original. We bought one of her designs for our book subscription company. The turnaround time was fast, efficient, and exactly what we ordered. 10/10 would work with Truborn Design again on future projects.”

“Kristina was so wonderful to work with! I approached her to commission a bookmark and bookplate for a story that didn’t have a standard theme, and she incorporated all my ideas in a way that I wouldn’t have been able to do myself. I appreciated how easy it was to communicate throughout the process regarding ideas and anything that needed slight changes. She responded quickly and kindly and I highly recommend her whenever I can.”

“Working with TruBornDesign was great for me and my weird anglerfish friend. Kristina is phenomenal to work with; she will give you great insight, work on your project with passion, and most importantly tell you that you aren’t the worst. Extremely supportive and fun to work with! 10/10 will bother again!”

“Kristina conjured up sick and disturbing graphics, texts, logos, bookmarks, and site cards. I couldn’t have been more impressed! She is (truly) the newborn heir of horror covers & horrific design and illustration. Seek out her dark talents!”

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with a number of talented illustrators and cover artists across a variety of projects, but I have to say that Kristina’s level of service and quality of work ranks amongst the finest I’ve seen so far. She absolutely nailed the vibe I was after for my cover straight away, bringing a modern look and sensibility to an unusual design.

I can’t wait to work with her again.”

“Kristina is a designer who knows her sh*t. She has an unprecedented ability to bring your ideas to life and creates designs that not only speak to your vision, but go beyond your expectations. She has a keen eye for detail, is transparent with communication and feedback, and really has great instincts when it comes to what does (or doesn’t) work. I can’t recommend Truborn Design enough.”

“When I came to Truborn Design with a vague concept for my cover, I knew I was in good hands. But when I saw the resulting masterpiece she had conjured, I was blown away. Not only a joy to work with, she listens to feedback to make the best result possible and thoroughly understands the complexities of design, while also supporting the project from concept to promotion. Without her knowledge and foresight, my release would never have been as successful as it was. Highly recommended for writers seeking a unique, professional cover design for their next project!”

“Truborn Design is quickly becoming known as the place to go for cover design. Kristina is easy to work with and tremendously talented, meticulously crafting exterior designs that do justice to the stories within. Authors and publishers alike will be thrilled with the flexibility, ease and speed of communication, and reasonable rates.”

“I noticed their designs on Instagram and I automatically knew I found my artist. Truborn has a wicked style of artwork. I have had so many comments on my cover on who awesome it is. Truborn really worked her magic and made my main character really stick out on the cover and paint the perfect picture in my reader’s head.”

“Kristina is a joy to work and collaborate with. Her cover art is perfect for those in the dark sci-fi and horror genres. If you’re looking for cover or logo design, Truborn Design is a great bet for solid and timely work!”

“I came to Kristina and TrubornDesign with very few ideas on what I needed for the cover my book. I gave a few simple notes and a short description of my story and she was able to perform something magical. Kristina was able to match the tone of my story with a beautiful cover design. Her response time was incredibly quick and all interactions felt both personal and professional. I have and will continue to recommend TrubornDesign to any of my writer friends.”

“Kristina was an unbelievably enjoyable artist to work with. I commissioned an image for merch for my book club and I felt like she was open and receptive and I got to be involved every step of the way. Although, I didn’t need to be, as Kristina is all hits and no misses. So, trust you’ll get a killer piece every time.”
