About-old

Kristen’s consistent (and infallible) taste, coupled with her UX skills, helped Homepolish totally shake up the world of hired-help home decoration.

THE GRAMLIST
 

Kristen Cesiro is a multifaceted, meticulous, and collaborative creative lead with 9 years in the field. Since studying Graphic & Interactive Design at Loyola University in Baltimore and Typography at MICA, Kristen has freelanced for a wide variety of clients and small businesses. After designing full-time at IAC and Gilt Groupe, she now sits with the team at Homepolish as Art Director.

Her spirited attention to detail and eye for clean, thoughtful design pairs well with her UX, data, and psychology experience. She enjoys finding the unique personality of a brand and manifesting it through design, photography, and voice—then strives to elevate and evolve it through its lifecycle. 

Kristen believes that a quiet, design-oriented life, one that is steeped in curiosity and purpose, can enhance one's experiences and relationships. She is also a self-taught coder, a fanatical Instagrammer, and considers Carl Sagan her hero.
