Kris Black - Designer

Columbia, SC, United States

I'm an interactive designer, web developer, author, illustrator, and Squarespace Specialist.

Overview

I build websites.

Before becoming a web designer, I worked as a graphic designer, art and photography director, and customer support specialist.

I worked for two Fortune 500 companies, state government, and small businesses. I'm currently an interactive designer and developer at truematter.

I actively consultant and specialize in building websites on Squarespace for small businesses and creative professionals. I've written two books about Squarespace. I've been a life-long drawer and cartoonist. I plan on publishing books one day that I illustrate.

I'm happily married with two incredible kids and two dogs. I geek out over anything related to Apple, comic books, and Star Wars.

Oh, and I want to build my own R2-D2.
