Scout Studio & Co. is owned and operated by Krista Connolly. I am a working mom, have the greatest husband, an amazing 16 year old son and a sweet, 6 year old goldendoodle named Scout. We recently moved from Northern California, where I have lived my entire life, to beautiful Lake Oswego, Oregon. I love to be in nature...walking or hiking...love la Croix and Peets coffee...love to entertain...love to garden, watch HGTV and love the beach but not laying out in the sun.
I have been working as a Designer in the Graphic Design field for over 20 years. After working as a Designer and Art Director in Creative Agencies throughout the Bay Area, I made the decision to start my own freelance Design & Branding studio in 2008. I absolutely love working as a freelance Designer because the types of projects I am able to work on vary tremendously. I am fortunate to be exposed to many different types of jobs and clients. Because of this, I have been able to grow tremendously as a designer and now I get to share all of my knowledge with you!
At Scout Studio & Co., I do not use pre-made templates and apply them to your business. I complete hours of research, gather ideas, and present multiple design concepts to you. We will work together to find just the right solutions for your business. I provide personalized attention every step of the way. This is the #1 reason why working with a professional Graphic Designer is so important. You will benefit from my experience and will receive individualized attention from me when working on your project. I provide the best approaches to helping your business grow through Design and Branding. I spend time researching your company and your competition. I carefully take your preferences into consideration and then develop a number of creative solutions to get your message across.
