Hello! I'm Christina Bull– a multidisciplinary designer and illustrator originally from Cape Cod, MA, currently living in Brooklyn, NY.  I graduated from Pratt Institute in 2015 with Highest Honors and an obsession for all things art & design-y. My main areas of focus include branding, web design, illustration, and advertising. 

When I'm not being a design dork, my other interests include old-school Nintendo games, killing all my houseplants, rewatching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and chasing down Mr. Softee trucks. I may be bad at writing quirky bios, but I'm pretty good at some other stuff. Let's get a project started!
