  Kristen Gara   My passion is graphic design. I have been doodling ever since I can remember, and I don’t plan to stop anytime soon. That passion led me to a career as an Art Director at big advertising firms in both New York and LA. I honed my skills on huge campaigns for clients like Ray-Ban, Honda, Excedrin and the LA Marathon. For the last ten years, I have gone into business for myself, partnering with Wanda Wen to design custom pieces for Soolip. These include wedding invitations, holiday cards, logos, letterhead, programs, illustrations, and signage. I would love the chance to work with you soon. Stop by and meet with Wanda at Soolip and that just may happen!
