As the senior designer, Kirsten Keister provides design and graphics support for all research, projects and events at MITH. She also facilitates project management by creating and adapting workflows, practices and processes for the team. She received her Masters of Professional Studies in Information Visualization from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and holds a Bachelor of Art in Graphic Design from Gordon College, where she acquired a strong background in fine art and photography. In 2008, she founded Lamppost Creative, a sole proprietorship that offers a wide range of graphic design and data visualization services to clients in across the country. When she’s not in front of the computer digging into data or creating fresh, smart and meaningful designs and visualizations for clients, she is either in her art studio or out taking photographs.
