Our Team

The MSP Design Studio team is comprised of experienced visionaries and developers each with a diverse set of creative skills including web coding, graphic design, illustration, 3D modeling, videography and social media strategy.

Patchaya Banks

Creative Director

Patchaya is the quintessential Jack-of-all-trades. Her interest in design developed at a young age, but she is essentially a self-taught artist. She is a problem-solver and takes pride in her ability to transform a client's vision into reality. Since taking on the role of Creative Director, she has led her team on numerous projects that have garnered national awards and recognition. She is a mother of an adorable, if somewhat hard-headed, preschooler which pretty much takes up all her "free" time.

Cristie Shires Abbott

Lead Designer

Cristie received her BA in Graphic Communications, but with her varying love of both fine art and digital design, she focused her studies on architectural CAD, fine arts, and graphic design. With her eclectic professional experience ranging from business management to 3D modeling, taking on the role as Lead Designer was a perfect fit. Cristie has proven herself to be a key asset to the company, with numerous awards to show for it. When she isn’t busy, she enjoys fixing up her historic home in Westminster, traveling, taking photographs, collecting giraffes, and of course, designing.

Lisa Licata

Graphics/Interactive Designer

Lisa has been the recipient of several design awards while studying Industrial Design and Packaging Sciences at Virginia Tech. She’s a huge fan of industrial designer Raymond Loewy, and is very excited to put her skills and creativity to work at the MSP Design Studio. In her spare time, Lisa designs and builds furniture, accessories, and is learning Italian.

Paige Kelly

Graphic Designer / Photographer

When Paige was younger she always enjoyed taking photos and sketching. Even at such a young age, she aspired to have a career in the design industry. It wasn’t until she started taking art and design classes at her local college, that she realized graphic design was her passion. Paige earned her Associates Degree in Graphic Design from Anne Arundel Community College. When she isn’t spending her time designing for Media Star Promotions, you can find her running half marathons, learning a new food recipe, or playing ukulele.
