Kristin Smith / Senior Designer

Kristin Smith is a seasoned designer in all areas of design for print, page layout for newsletters, business marketing materials and email communications.

Experience:

Kristin is a graduate of Michigan State University and has over 12 years of experience in the printing and graphic design fields. Her experience prior to working at Kaleidoscopic was in financial publishing as well as screen and large format printing. She specializes in designing corporate communications materials and manages projects from concept to final product, helping clients every step of the way. In addition, she is proficient in Adobe Photoshop and edits images for use in magazine advertisements and websites.

What sets Kaleidoscopic apart from other designers?

Our large skill set.
Kaleidoscopic offers great web design as well as a thorough knowledge of the technical aspects of building a website. Some web designers produce great looking websites, but do not focus on producing valid, functional and search-able web code. Kaleidoscopic is the whole package. We take great pride in producing great web code that is optimized for search performance and W3C valid websites that perform as great as they look. We also have an extensive background in printing, color and pre-press and always take the appropriate steps to ensure that our designs press ready - thereby reducing mistakes and production cost. Other areas of expertise include photo editing and illustration.

Great customer service.
You can always expect us to be friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and flexible. We truly value the relationships we have with our clients. We work closely with clients to understand their needs and goals, and consider each project a partnership toward reaching those goals. At Kaleidoscopic, we work hard to meet the tightest of deadlines, as we know the need for your project may have arisen suddenly and a quick turn-around is required. Our clients consider us more as a "friend in the business" than just a company they've hired to provide a service.

Attention to detail.
This ties in with our large skill set. A website might look great, but are there any mistakes in the code that powers the web site? We make sure the answer is "no," by writing good, solid code, optimizing it for performance and validating it with W3C, the ultimate authority on web code. When designing print projects, we also thoroughly read your text and are that second (or third, or fourth...) set of eyes to help you avoid any embarrassing spelling, grammar or punctuation mistakes.

  • Delivered Outstanding Service

    For anyone looking to develop a website for their business, I recommend without reservation Michael Habenicht of Kaleidoscope, Inc. He took the website I had and totally reworked it keeping only the elements I requested. He and his team are very knowledgeable, patient, and customer focused and delivered outstanding service. I look forward to working with him again when I can add some of the additional "bells and whistles" to the site that we discussed once the business grows.

  • Attractive, Interactive Website

    The City of Mount Holly, NC wanted to develop a new, interactive, useful and highly attractive website because our old website had gotten quite stale. After an exhaustive search of local website developers, I was fortunate enough to find Kaleidoscopic, Inc., and I quickly arranged a meeting with Mike Habenicht. After negotiating a contract and getting a clear idea of what the City wanted its website to look like, Mike and his staff were excellent throughout the development and launch project. I do not think we could have chosen a better company for our website rebranding. Kaleidoscopic's staff were very patient throughout the entire process. Mr. Habenicht constantly kept us updated as we were preparing to go live. The City has received nothing but positive comments on our new website, and our citizens and visitors now have an excellent information resource, which is only a click away. I would highly recommend Kaleidoscopic for your website needs. There are several towns and organizations that have been so impressed with Mount Holly's website that I constantly hear, "I need to get the name of your website developer!"

  • Amazing

    As an owner of a brand and marketing agency, we have worked with Michael Habenicht of Kaleidoscopic, Inc. on several website and marketing projects. Michael is simply the best I have ever worked with. In fact, our last project we worked with Michael on, he nailed it so well, we only had one very, very small tweak that took a couple minutes to change. That's was amazing. I can't recommend Michael strongly enough to partner with.

  • Looks Amazing

    We own a small business and wanted someone creative to draw our company logo. We found Michael at Kaleidoscopic, Inc and we are so glad we did. He is a gifted and very talented artist and web developer. We even hired him to design our website and it looks amazing. I highly recommend Michael and Kaleidoscopic to anyone looking for a creative, different, appealing logo and for their web developer. I don't believe there is a better person out there personally and professionally to help grow and target your business!
