Crysta Polvinale is a graphic designer with almost a decade of experience that ranges from fine art to brand identity. She is budding in the space of mission-driven work and hopes to serve Texans through creative problem solving.
Crysta holds a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Savannah College of Art and Design, where she focused on designing sustainable products. In one project, she designed a refillable product station for placement within grocery stores.
After graduating, Crysta spent three years at the Austin Convention Center developing graphics for the catering and sales team. She created successful café brands that served customers at a variety of events. As a result, she was recruited to share her designs and support regional convention centers like Rupp Arena and Kentucky International Convention Center.

As a visual artist, Crysta creates artwork that muses on how women are affected by the intersection between history and advertising. Her mediums include paint, collage and colored pencil. This exploration brings her joy and informs her digital design work.
Crysta grew up in Florida and made her way to Austin, where she lives with her husband and two little ones. In her spare time, you can catch her cooking, general DIY-ing or dropping everything to dance.
