Talent Profile
Kiersten Linde  
Senior Graphic Designer
I have a BFA degree in Graphic Design from the University of Wisconsin STOUT and over ten years’ working experience in the field of advertising, marketing and design. 

Since graduating and beginning my career as a designer, my work experience has included both freelance and corporate projects, within the US and in Europe/Germany. I have extensive working experience in every aspect of graphic design as well as publishing, from concept development and layout to preflighting, along with management and art direction to quality control. This experience is supported by my strong knowledge in the areas of typesetting, pre-press coordination, and creativity I bring to all projects. 

Due to working with various companies and agencies I am also very flexible, and enjoy working in a team environment as well as independently. And given my well-rounded background in graphic design along with branding, publishing and marketing, I am looking for a work environment that will challenge me, as well as let me grow as a Graphic Designer in further developing my talent.
