Kristen Gau

Digital Creative Director

As digital creative director, I determine the best way to visually communicate ideas and guide users easily to the information they seek on WashU websites and digital properties. I work with colleagues and partners to utilize best practices in user experience design and research to create delightful interactions online.

I have spent nearly 20 years in marketing and design and am proud to have always called St. Louis home. I earned a BFA in Visual Communication from Truman State University.

Outside of work I enjoy drawing, collecting illustrated children’s stories, and spending time outdoors. My favorite pastime is hiking with my three inquisitive children, my husband and our pandemic puppy, Sophie.
