About Heather Cristofaro

Over the past decade, I’ve made a career balancing web programming and design. The Rhode Island School of Design helped me push these even farther by strengthening my art in illustration. From Providence, Rhode Island to New York City, my clients choose my work based on my ability to integrate traditional illustration methods into creative multimedia. My work is focused on clean communication coupled with rich visual experiences. These visuals are often inspired from linking nature to technology, invoking mystery with memories, and vintage adaptations.
