Christine Busch


Founder + Art Director

My passion and number one purpose is to create beautiful, user-friendly design within each client’s brand. Consistency in design and tone is essential for all business contact points, so I work with all aspects of a brand’s design to accomplish that holistic effect.

I’ve worked with clients like Colgate, Consumer Reports, Southwest Airlines,
and Hallmark as part of an advertising agency and as a freelancer. Now I utilize my skills and experience, along with the talented team here at Illume, to serve entrepreneurs and small businesses with the best strategic design to fit their unique needs.
