Christy Forsythe (she/her)
Designer. Director. Illustrator. Maker of things.
I’m a creative art director by title and a graphic designer by nature. When I was five years old, I started designing birthday cards for my friends on my Commodor 64, and later on, business cards for my parents on a primitive PC. That passion has only continued to grow – into devotion and talent for impeccable design, creative strategy, and most of all, innovative and moving work. 
With ample experience in branding, ideation, advertising, packaging, and web design, I’ve developed into a conceptual thinker and distinctive multi-disciplinary creative professional backed by exceptional technical expertise. I've also been known to do a bit of illustration, digital animation and even write a headline or two. I even wrote this very sentence you're reading right now. Wow, right?
When I am not behind a computer, I spend as much time as I can in the outdoors doing Alberta stuff – camping in my vintage '77 trailer, fishing and hiking with my husband and two daughters. I also have an abundance of other interests including making polymer clay earrings, woodworking, gardening, doing squats, snowboarding, and cuddling my two cats.
I’d love to hear from you.
