Design & Illustration


Kristian Gallagher is an award winning designer & illustrator. She specializes in surface pattern design and mixed media illustrations inspired by the tropics under the brand name Modern Tropical.


She has recently launched collabs with Urban Outfitters, Americanflat, and iCanvas. Earlier this year, she was a winner of the Pottery Barn x Minted Walls That Wow competition.


When not creating new work in the studio, you’ll likely find Kristian with a camera in her hands, traveling to new destinations or revisiting favorites. She has been an avid photographer since 2015, and recently won the Key West Photography Festival, Nature & Landscape category, for her photo Rainforest Blossom.
