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 with design. My other interests include old-school Nintendo, Buffy the Vampire Slayer trivia, and chasing down Mr. Softee trucks. I'm bad at writing quirky bios, but good at some other stuff.

I am currently a Visual Designer at SapientRazorfish.
