Kristin Waddington

Advisory Board's Design and Brand Liaison, Austin Design Week; Co-Founder/Creative Partner The Label Collective

Kristin and her twin sister, Erin Pitts, found a common desire to challenge the current agency model. Their goal was to promote the idea of smart, approachable design for clients of all sizes. Together, they decided to form The Label Collective, an independent creative/marketing studio passionate about the value and impact of design and strategy.

Prior to The Label Collective, Kristin gained 10 years of experience between two agencies, in Art Director and Associate Creative Director roles, concepting and managing internal teams for clients such as Dell, Best Buy, Citi, Starbucks, and Capital Metro Transportation Authority.

Outside of The Label Collective, Kristin spends time volunteering with TEDxAustin and Dogtoberfest Austin, an annual event dedicated to fundraising for Austin-based dog rescue groups. She also serves as an Advisory Board Member for The Wine & Food Foundation of Texas.
