Branding     About

Chrislin Hearn is an illustrator, animator and art director in training with a BFA in Communication Arts. She was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and currently lives in Richmond, Virginia, where she studies art direction at VCU Brandcenter.

Hailing from a family of story tellers, Chrislin has learned to utilize a wide array of mediums over the years to become an adept visual communicator. After participating in a student workshop at the martin agency, Chrislin quickly realized that art direction was the perfect way for her to exercise her two greatest talents — designing things and coming up with wild ideas. A problem-solver by nature, Chrislin enjoys coming up with succinct visual solutions, especially branding.

In her spare time, Chrislin enjoys playing guitar, wandering around in the woods looking for mushrooms, managing her cat’s instagram page, and searching for slices of cake to review.
