Kristen Bunting

Owner /  Designer

Kristen BuntingAfter graduating in 1994 from Virginia Wesleyan College with a degree in Communications, I have worked as a graphic/web designer and marketing professional for several advertising agencies, the Army ROTC marketing department and multiple corporate firms within the Hampton Roads area. I opened my company, Design-Nectar, in 2010. I have been fortunate in developing close working relationships with creative and production resources in the area including photographers, programmers and printers. I  consider them not only part of my team, but also friends.

I am currently a member of the American Marketing Association, and have volunteered my design services for various local fundraising committees, including Dive for a Cure (an annual event for cancer victims), the American Institute of Architects annual golf tournament, and the Loudon County Kids First Children’s Advocacy Center. In 2020, I received the News Channel 3 ‘People Taking Action’ award for my years of leadership and fundraising in the annual Polar Plunge event, which benefits the Special Olympics of Virginia.

In my personal time, I enjoy the ‘Art of Life’ with my husband and two daughters. I enjoy the beach and camping, sports including horseback riding, softball, tennis, golf, and volleyball…and I love to cook & entertain with family and friends.
