Creative Director & Owner
Cindy not only applies her considerable graphic design skills to countless Clay Pot Creative clients, but she is also the co-owner of the established marketing agency with her husband Brian Kraus. She believes strongly in building relationships with clients, the team and the Fort Collins' community. She has been an art director for over 20 years and has applied her skills on countless brand developments, logo designs, websites, promotional materials, product packaging, print ads, and far more. Cindy seamlessly takes fine art principles and transforms them into modern, creative marketing solutions. She loves collaborating with clients to design concepts that are an innovative blend of what's needed and where they want to go with the visual expression of their brand.
Cindy is happiest when she can take a basic image or idea for a client, and hand craft new possibilities they haven't even thought of yet. The passion she has for taking design concepts and making them a reality is just one of the many things that have fueled her career.
A St. Louis native, Cindy earned her Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in graphic design from Colorado State University.
