About 

Hello, I'm Krysta Tan-Tiongco! I work in New York City as a designer with an emphasis on interiors, architecture, graphic design, and visualization. I invite you to continue reading if you are searching for someone with:

  • Top three weapons of choice: Photoshop, Vectorworks, Rhino + VRay
  • Keeps her hard skills strong with frequent sketching, chalk pastels, and watercolour painting
  • An addiction to colour, detail, organization, and asking questions
  • A little entrepreneurial spirit who knows the power of the image, optics, and a well-designed brand and strategy
  • Conversational abilities in French and Tagalog (I'm also dabbling in Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and German!)

Aside from the formalities, I also have interests in web design, music, dance, fashion, and gardening. They keep me creative and inspired! How about you?

It's a pleasure to meet you! Shall we?
