ABOUT
Christine Clayton
Design & Art Direction
︎ ccandco@protonmail.com




Hi! ︎ I’m a freelance brand identity designer and CD/AD formerly based in NYC, now in weird and wonderful Austin, TX. I regularly partner with agencies and brands in need of project-based brand identity, design, and art direction.

When I’m not working, I’m listening to podcasts, Andrew Bird and the band Beirut, Tiny Desk Concerts on NPR, and taking the pups on hikes through the Austin greenbelt. I’m also the founder of a not-for-profit, pandemic project that was created to serve the NYC restaurant industry called Creatives for Kitchens. In the year we were in operation, we served over 30 restaurants who were hard-hit by the effects of the lockdown.

KIND WORDS FROM CLIENTS  ︎


"Working with Christine to conceptualize and design our brand was one of the best collaborative experiences I've had. She is exceptionally thorough, timely in all of her communications around deliverables and it was clear she had invested serious time and energy into the project to understand the mission we are chasing. She was able to take rough concepts and bring the brand in a direction we didn't know was possible, but got the entire team excited to be a part of it. I fully plan to work with her again on future projects."

Jared Damman, VP of Products, WildKind


“Christine was an absolute dream to work with. She was professional in every step of the process, especially delivering her concepts and providing thoughtful feedback. I truly felt like this project was a collaboration and our brand is better for having her involved. Would highly recommend and will definitely hire Christine again in the future!"

Marie Evans, Founder, Collette


"I have worked with Christine on several projects and can confidently say she is amazing. She is very creative, insightful, and shares her thoughts and ideas to make the result even better than I imagined. If she has any questions about the project, she reaches out quickly to get more clarification by asking very insightful questions. I learned a lot along the way about graphic design - as Christine took the time to explain options for different layouts. I would highly recommend Christine."

Deborah McCuiston, Strategic Marketing Consultant, Cash App


"We needed a brand book completed in just a week and Christine was able to do this given the short time frame. The final output was very high quality. Christine was very responsive, communicated efficiently and was able to take our vision and ideas and create a well designed final output. We would like to continue working with Christine on future projects and would recommend her to others."

Maria Ravn, Customer Solutions & Marketing Manager, Purple Sun


"Christine was very professional, organized and enthusiastic. She was excited to help my vision come to life and was just as invested in the project as I was. She is a great listener and really understood the direction of the company and product. I couldn't have been happier with Christine and the work she has done. I will use her again for any design work I need."

Kelly Broderick, Matriarch Beverage Co.


"Christine is a very talented designer! She was also very responsive, understanding and accommodating. We are just starting out in our business and she helped to guide us along in the project. We hope to work with her again soon!"

CEO, Korkoro Chocolates
