Kristin Austin

KRISTIN serves up daily inspiration as the Lead Author of Between Designs. She is also our Production Manager, which means she gets to play with pretty ribbons, shiny crystals, and silky papers all the day long. While her side of the studio may look like a girlie, crafty paradise, it’s also “command central." Kristin keeps busy orchestrating material orders, timing trips to bindery, and generally making sure every printed product meets TGK’s quality standards so your order arrives to you in one gorgeous piece.

Kristin grew up in Florida where she developed a lifelong devotion to the beach, though she now enjoys living the city life in downtown Raleigh with her fiance, Matt, and two pups, Lily and Bonham. She and her fella often bicycle to many of the art galleries and music venues in the area (they even met at a show). Her many creative talents range from jewelry making and glass blowing (yes, glass blowing!) to designing snazzy flyers for Matt’s band. Currently, she can be found spending any free time planning her September wedding!

Kristin's Favs:
{Starbucks Beverage} Winter: Gingerbread Latte + Summer: Caramel Frappucinno
{Childhood Cartoon/TV Show} The Smurfs and The Wonder Years
{Color} Currently, yellow! 1) It's always cheerful, 2) it used to be my mom's favorite color, and 3) it's going to be my main wedding color!
