Broomfield, Colorado-based Editor, Writer, Graphic Designer Kris Scott

Who Am I?

I'm a designer, editor and writer who started freelancing in 2009 after I had my second son. I love Colorado and all it has to offer and am currently on my third and hopefully last time living in this wonderful state. I grew up a barefooted heathen in Lincoln, NE, (my first job was selling pennants as a scrawny 10-year-old at Husker football games) and have also lived in Austin and Dallas, TX. I love a good hike, a great book, being outdoors with my family and a glass of really good bourbon or rye. After freelancing for eight years, I'd love to find a more permanent gig. 

OK, now for the more professional spiel:

I'm an ex-journalist/now freelancer with a career-long passion for content strategy, development, distillation and packaging. My work approach is smart and efficient. I can handle a large amount of work in a short time frame (One of my client's has nicknamed me "Speedy"). I thrive on continuous challenge, professional growth and collaboration. And I have a great sense of humor. (I can provide references to prove that.)

"Kris is a rare employee: She can be nose-to-the-grindstone cranking out work one minute and take a step back to thoughtfully put together a two-year plan the next. She has a great grasp of print media and is becoming an expert in social media. I recommend her without reservation."

β€”Rick Wamre, President, Advocate Media

"Kris is a smart, creative problem-solver who can handle a huge workload independently and with impressive results. As a designer, she's a communicator, not a decorator; she understands content and knows how to use visual techniques to inform as well as entertain. As a coworker, she's both team player and standout. Her talent, energy and sense of humor made the Rocky Mountain News a better place. If I had the chance, I'd hire her again in an instant."
