Owner and designer, Kristin Korch has a creative sole with a technical edge and an eye for detail. From marketing to makeup, the battle of her practical and creative sides shaped a unique set of skills over the years. After living abroad for almost 2 years, Kristin became attracted to the idea of having a flexible career and jumped into the world of web and graphic design. After completing the Web Design & Development Program via BCIT, she decided to incorporate her own company.

“I always wanted to start my own business, especially after watching my Dad grow his own successful business over the years.”

Studio 86 was born in May 2012 offering solely web and graphic design services and has evolved so much since. With the need for professional, custom imagery in her web and branding projects, Kristin’s love for photography was finally able to make it’s debut. Kristin’s photography services have since taken the lead and she is now focusing on lifestyle and commercial photography to be able to capture your brand to tell a story.


Your brand is the single most important investment you can make in your business.


I couldn’t agree more. Branding is essential. Brands convey a uniform quality, credibility and experience. No branding, no differentiation. No differentiation, no long-term profitability. People don’t have relationships with products, they are loyal to brands.

With the amount of online businesses today you need to differentiate your business across all platforms. A business’ brand can be more important than the product or service its selling. It’s all about creating brand heat and product lust and it’s not an easy thing to achieve all on your own. Let me help!
