Hagopian Ink is led by Creative Director and President Christina Hagopian. Known for her hands-on, approachable and professional demeanor and her meticulous yet fluid approach to creative direction, Christina has been a trusted resource to her clients, collaborators and contemporaries since launching Hagopian Ink in 2002.
Christina draws inspiration from her surroundings. Whether it’s the urban landscape of Manhattan or the tides and shores at her family’s Cape Cod summer home, these organic influences find their way into her work and color her design perspective. Her creative instincts show up in all aspects of her life. When she’s not at work, you can find Christina strolling gourmet groceries, seeking the perfect culinary inspiration for her next home-cooked meal or spending hours at her pottery wheel, experimenting with glazes and forms.
Christina holds a BFA in Communication Design from Carnegie Mellon University and credits her time there with fueling her love of design and the problem-solving process. With 20 years of experience in the field, Christina is an active and well-respected contributor to the New York City design and entrepreneur communities.
