Meet the Team

The Evertypes

Sean Ashcraft

Sean Ashcraft

Principal Creative Director
Sean single handedly knows every trick, shortcut, and Adobe sneak invented, and is the master of bringing ideas to life.  In the fast paced world of Evertype, Sean manages to keep everyone on track, while giving his own work the creative intensity it deserves. Sean mentors the artroom with a hands-on teaching style coupled with a solution-oriented work style. Because of his intricate work style, Sean is a trouble shooter and design MacGyver (sans mullet, though he did have one in the ’80s, it was amazing) for the most complex of challenges.
Kristin Barret

Kristin Barret

Principal Strategic Director
Kristin couples her creative spirit with her strategic mind. It’s true that she dreams up big ideas, but her marketing mind is also at work to ensure that the concepts effectively guide the brand.  Kristin brings an expertise to clients that goes beyond written creative briefs, she has a natural ability to get clients motivated about marketing, and works tirelessly as a creative problem solver.  Her enthusiasm is infectious, which translates into fresh ideas and creative brainstorming with the artroom. It’s true, she is a terrible illustrator, but is a copious note taker and is “that girl” who steals pens/pencils on accident.
Carlo Palazzolo

Carlo Palazzolo

Graphic Designer
Carlo is a highly conceptual designer, relying on his own imagination and creativity to create award-winning concepts. With a passion for fonts and custom illustration, Carlo creates unique designs that are one-of-a-kind. With strong layout skills, Carlo brings the ability to organize a lot of detail and artistic assets. He is skilled at print production and managing graphics for point of purchase and structural/environmental applications. Plus, he can deadlift 515lbs. That’s a whole llama. Just sayin’.
Amanda Weiner

Amanda Weiner

Graphic Designer
Amanda loves typography, photography, and branding. If she’s going somewhere, she’ll most likely bring her camera. Custom fonts and a Wacom tablet are her best friends (she can hand letter like nobody’s business). Amanda has been constantly learning design skills since graduating college with a BS in Graphic Design in 2011. Becoming more of a perfectionist every day. Amanda loves being outdoors, which inspires her to be better as a whole. Her inspirations always roll over into her designs. Things that influence/inspire her designs: anything DIY, cooking (total foodie: epicurioscity.com), architecture, and nature (to name a few). And, she’s a secret nerd.
