Crystal Frankenbery, Graphic Design. Adventure.

Oh, hello there!

I am a globe-trotting creative + tech nerd born and raised in Lake Stevens, WA. I hope we get the chance to meet so you can tell me your story, but in the meantime here is mine.

I graduated in 2014 from Seattle University, and started my post-graduate life with a solo backpacking trip to New Zealand. I fell in love with constantly trying out new places, while getting to do what I love. Since then I’ve been to 25 countries, and have lived in, Paris, Prague, Portland, and Phoenix.

I grew up with a fascination of technology, finding ways to film my childhood adventures with all the neighbor kids and my Sony camcorder. Before I had a smart phone I would beg my friends to let me play on their iPhones, discovering how a retro filter would completely transform a photo of my cat (I have come a long way since then.)

While I was working at the Apple Store, I’d buy new products right when they hit the shelves. My passion for tech has been interwoven through my career as a graphic designer. I nerd out on the future innovation that 5G will bring, or how to best deliver a rich user experience demoing the capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics 365. Since I’ve worked for many tech-industry disruptors, my knowledge of the landscape elevates my work, regardless of the client I am working with.

Digital is a powerful medium, but it’s important to know that I LOVE to be outdoors. In my free time you can find me hanging my hammock in the mountains or driving around aimlessly listening to music. I’m about the best road trip partner one could ask for, and have a playlist for just about any mood. Music has always been able to offer me creative fuel, and I love to dabble in ukulele, harmonica, guitar, and piano.


other fun frankenbery facts:

I got my first freelance client working at the Apple store talking to customers and have been learning and growing as a designer ever since!

Lover of plants, tea, and beautiful branding! Sucker for anything handwritten.

My first job was at Taco Time NW, and if you ask anyone they will tell you I am their biggest fan.

Dream job would probably be working for Starbucks, TikTok, or REI, but I hope I can continue to use my creativity to advance female and minority-led companies that are passionate about making a difference in the world.
