“We had a quick turnaround for a major client, and Krystal was on top of it- collaborative, communicative, and professional through the whole process. What impressed me was how quickly she delivered delightful concepts and implemented the clients brand style to a tee, in such a short amount of time.”

“I brought Krystal on for the project at Uber, which was a great decision. She delivered really compelling concepts that communicated the product feature in a refreshing way we hadn’t thought about before. We loved the illustrations so much that we used them in our product announcement, as well as for our developer event. I’ve brought Krystal Lauk Studios on a number of projects since then”

Chris Saad

Head of Product, Uber


"As an art director, finding a talented illustrator is not that hard. What separates Krystal from the crowd is her ability to understand the vision, and then exceed the end goal for that project. The result speaks for itself and was stunning. Her professionalism and her personable, open minded attitude made the whole process a breeze. I’m looking forward to working with her again, and would recommend you do the same."

Creative Director, L'atelier Starno


"I recently contracted with Krystal to create concept illustrations for LeapFrog. From contract to thumbnails to final art, she was professional and very responsive, providing great ideas and keeping me in the loop throughout the project. She went the extra mile under a tight deadline to deliver beautiful illustrations, including a number of last-minute revisions."
