Hi, I’m Kristina. I’m a Creative Director, Designer, and Watercolor Illustrator based in New York City.
Born and raised in Russia and having lived in Montréal, Miami, Paris, Amsterdam, Sydney, Los Angeles, and New York, I've created content for clients all around the world. In all of my creative pursuits, I want to inspire others to live a more intentional and creative life.
Occasional bizarre accent aside, I fit in everywhere I go. With degrees in both Business and in Art Direction, I am uniquely able to balance creative direction with brand strategy. My clients include Fossil, Nike, Michelob ULTRA, Patron Tequila, Tresemmé, Acura, and Netflix. I've produced work for TV, branded content, social media, digital, print, and full integrated campaign launches, including Acura's first Super Bowl spot in 4 years.
When I was 26, I was named one of Business Insider's 30 Most Creative People in Advertising under 30.
Super Bowl spot aside, my proudest achievement is teaching my dog Winston to high five. When I'm not on set, you can find me running CaizleyHouse, a platform for creative living, and watercoloring interior designs for clients such as Studio Life/Style and Ginny MacDonald Design. I’m a big advocate of reviving the lost art of making things by hand.
