Christine Rains

I'm passionate about shape and color. My illustration work is full of beautiful colors and represents images in a fresh clean style.

I've been a graphic designer for 30 years, and I apply my design aesthetic to creating publications that are easy to read, marketing pieces that sell, and maps and illustrations that help make your story even clearer. The world of design has changed a lot since I first opened my doors, but my love of it hasn’t. Starting a new project with a blank slate and bringing a concept to life . . . this I love.

My early love of gardening led to my degree in Landscape Architecture. Working at my father’s printing plant kindled a passion for the importance of the printed word, and the significance of the design behind it. I combine those passions with my work in print communication and illustration.
