Ten Designers to Watch in 2022: Krystal Banner
Krystal Banner from Kaleidadope is one of the Ten Designers to Watch in 2022. Read more about her in this Q&A.
Aesthetic of the Line?
Colorful, modern and bold. There is a not-so-subtle attempt to incorporate every color on the color wheel while injecting humor and representation. The theme is “color & culture,” which describes both the brand aesthetic and soul.
Finest Alcohol is my current and all-time best seller. I originally made it for my sister, who had to cancel her birthday plans the week after everything shut down in 2020. I wanted to cheer her up. It resonated with thousands of people and even sparked several copycats. I guess that’s how you know you’re doing something right!
Designer Birthday is witty, colorful and although I’m biased, it’s just great design. It also gives luxury vibes, which I’m all about.
My Bad, Mom was originally made for Mother’s Day, but to my surprise it continues to sell.
Fly Spirit started off as a joke and my declaration that there would have to be love or insanity involved. This is one of the cards that people know Kaleidadope for, and also defines the feel of my brand.
At the moment it’s holographic. Does that count?
Current Design Obsession?
Incorporating different fonts. I. Love. Fonts.
Roses! I buy them weekly for my home. They make me smile.
Krispy Kreme glazed donuts. A culinary work of art.
