Kristen aspired to be a painter and chased her dreams with a design scholarship. She learned web and interface skills and leveraged those talents in freelance and agency design work. When a Scribd colleague recommended Kristen for interview, she was completely taken by the product impact and iteration—and Scribd's zero time-sheet policy.
Kristen uses early mornings to get in the creative zone. She works on projects individually first, then collectively builds Scribd’s library and style guide with the UX Team. After catered lunch with colleagues, Kristen tightens up visuals with the Product Team—and partners with the Engineering Team to develop delightful designs that resonate with readers.
