Who We Are

Alessandra

Stemming from her Colombian heritage, her work is colorful and pattern-driven. She loves printing, and is often assisted by her two tiny chihuahuas. Ale met Stephanie met in grad school at the Corcoran College of Art + Design, where they gained Master’s Degrees in book arts.

Kristen

Kristen came to TCI as an intern in 2014, and we never let her leave! She studied graphic and web design at the Art Institute and is an award-winning editorial designer. (She's probably even worked on something you've read!) When not designing at a computer, she uses letterpress as a more tactile approach to design - and it fits in perfectly with her love of machinery, power tools and working with her hands. Originally from Pennsylvania, she now lives in Virginia with her husband, their dog Brutus, and their toothless cat Charlie.
