Designer Khristian A. Howell! Fun, fearless and a great eye for color!

Today’s interview is with the lovely Khristian A. Howell. Bright, colorful and cool are the best words to describe her! She blasted onto the design and licensing scene a of couple years ago and has not slowed down since. She is completely candid (ok, slightly hilarious) in the interview about what she knew and did not know as she quit her day job and went out on her own. She has been featured in Better Homes and Garden as of late. She is one creative lady  to watch!

    Thanks very much for the great interview. Not really sure what the circumstances were when i was first introduced to Khristian but I believe it was her My Licensing Story video on YouTube and then we later “met” on Twitter. I have a couple of her ebooks and consider her a friend in this industry and very inspiring. And I LOVE the fact that she is half my age and pushes me to be a better version of myself! Looking forward to meeting her face-face in May. She inspired me to finally take that leap and join the fun at Surtex! Great interview, Khristian and great work, as always, Monica!

  • Awesome! I love Khristian and her work! These interviews are great- everyone is so open and honest and I think you are building a great community here, Monica! I’ve already passed your site on to a couple of my friends that are thinking about getting into licensing too… Keep up the great work!
