Michael Kristof Graphic Design Program Director

Michael Kristof

Graphic Design Coordinator

With a BFA in Advertising Design, Michael spent over two decades creating award-wining advertising, branding and design for national brands such as AT&T, Dr. Pepper, Holiday Inn, Johnson & Johnson, Mobil Oil, STIHL, McDonalds, March of Dimes, and the American Diabetes Association. He uses his vast experience as an Art/Creative Director to manage the graphic design program while teaching students how to develop focused strategies to create memorable and insightful graphic design solutions — the skills that advertising and design agencies look for when hiring creative talent.

Although Michael has earned his share of creative awards including New York Festivals, London International Advertising Awards, Communication Arts, Creativity Annual as well as multiple local and regional Addy’s, he believes his biggest accomplishments are his amazing 16-year-old daughter, becoming an Eagle Scout and earning his 2nd degree black belt.

In his spare time, Michael enjoys designing furniture, riding his motorcycle and spending time with family and friends.
