About Kristen Graham

I attended the Girard, KS School District from K-12. Then moved onto Pittsburg State University to get a Bachelor of Technology in Commercial Graphics. While at PSU, I was employed by Student Publications for 3 years where I experienced many rolls... Newspaper Page Layout Designer, Yearbook Editor in Chief and Graphic Designer, and Advertising Representative. It was also in my years at PSU that I met my wonderful husband Doug. My husband and I have settled back in my hometown where we are close to both of our wonderful families. I have now been in the print industry for 2 years (post college), working as a Graphic Designer and Type Setter for a Vender that coats and print labels using a Flexographic Press. I try and keep involved in the Graphic Industry by taking on small side projects... invitations, websites and various commercial items.
