Kristan Butler

Creative Director

Curious, committed and creative to the Nth degree. CIG’s creative director is always diving into a new adventure. Kristan brings expertise in design, branding, digital media and video and a highly professional attitude to boot. From creative spark to polished end product, she sees the big picture and always follows through. No idea is too wild or inventive — as long as it fits a killer strategy that serves the client’s needs. 

Kristan has crafted brands, marketing communications and campaigns for local and international clients from Canvas Credit Union to The Ritz Carlton. She spent her first few decades exploring the East Coast but is proud to have called Colorado home for nearly 10 years now. As a biology nerd turned art major, she brings both the strategic and creative sides of her brain to every project. Kristan’s passion is using her diverse background in design, digital and advertising to help each client connect with their audience in a unique and meaningful way.

After many years of working alongside national and global companies in the healthcare, technology, legal, education and financial industries, Kristan joined CIG with the goal of serving Colorado-based organizations and initiatives. She’s thrilled for the opportunity to fuse her love of all things local — especially food, wine and the arts — with her business and creative skills.
