Business Owner / Graphic Designer / Copywriter

ID Graphics – Bamboo River Marketing

  • Create outstanding projects that engage people through conversations, connection and community. 
  • Consider equity and diversity when selecting imagery, writing style, and layouts. Use styles that allow everyone the ability to see themselves in the topics we communicate and how they can choose to be part of the brand or story.
  • Develop easier processes for seeing the big picture and attending to the small details so that we create the actions needed to get jobs done on time, within budget and exceeding expectations
  • Over 10,000 hours in website design, print, social media, content creation, TV commercials, radio ads, videos, photography, book design and writing, and scriptwriting for making automation easier
  • Create proposals and projects that place priority on two of the three topics so we know how to set time schedules and cost estimates: time, quality, and cost. Put together proposals that make sense and schedules that can be followed and adjusted as we go. Purchase printing, mailing, SEO, online digital space, and/or media as needed or make suggestions for clients on how to purchase on their own.

There are so many reasons to enjoy working with Kirsten. Not only is she creative and professional, she is also a positive ray of sunshine! I leave every session with her full of energy and super-human powers. I have enjoyed working with Kirsten as an actress and voiceover talent. But I also have enjoyed consulting with her on business and marketing ideas. The girl is full of ideas that rock. I look forward to many more creative projects with Kirsten.

Kirsten is a positive, goal-oriented, committed professional. She is easy to communicate with, flexible and dependable. In a marketing world where contacts are always changing, Kirsten has a long-term focus and has developed relationships to last - built on trust, and delivering a solid product. I've been working with Kirsten consistently on projects for many years, and that is a special and rare thing in advertising! I'm grateful to have connected with her and look forward to many more years of working together. If you are considering Kirsten for your next project, you can be assured that you will get someone who will care about what you want, give valuable creative input, is easy to work with, and will see your project through to completion.

KIrsten is a bright, edgy and effective communicator. Her marketing clients sometimes complain that her campaigns bring them more business than they can handle. She can write, speak, teach, coach, do creative graphics, make videos … the whole deal. And do it well! Plus, she's fun to be around.
