Meet the Board: Christine Sheller

Meet Christine.

What’s your day job?
I lead an amazing Design team at FS Investments, an alternative investment firm in the Philadelphia Navy Yard.

What inspires you?
Street art, signage, architecture, nature. And people.

Do you have a hidden talent? What is it?
It’s a secret.

I’m pretty damn clumsy.

A lot of old school hip hop (essential for cycling!)

Pissed Jeans.

Mr. + Mrs. Eaves

What do you love about AIGA?
100% the people; they’ve become close friends + family to me.

What did you want to be when you were a kid?
Definitely a cereal box designer. Or a lawyer.

Who’s your design superhero?
Alexander Girard 💖

If you were an ice cream flavor, which one would you be and why?
Chocolate + peanut butter. Because, really, does a better combination exist? I think not.

Would you rather be a giant rodent or a tiny elephant?
Tiny elephant every time. (I am also going to pretend that I didn’t read the words giant rodent; in my self-contained happy place they just don’t exist)

If you had a time machine, would you go forward or back in time?
Definitely forward. But can I come back?
