Krystal Ferguson is a graphic designer by trade, and community servant at heart. A kind act from a “big sister” at the age of nine sparked her lifelong commitment to mentorship and advocacy. Born to a family of educators, musicians, and singers, she developed a love for learning and the arts. Ferguson is an Eleanor Roosevelt Science and Technology alum. At Roosevelt, she presided over her junior class, the STEPS mentoring organization, and joined the Mentoring Youth Leadership Committee led by the late Zack Barry. She studied graphic design at the Delaware College of Art and Design and completed her bachelor’s degree at the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design. After eight years of working full-time while freelancing as unkanny! Design, she set out to operate her graphic design business fulltime.

Ferguson has served causes in art, education, and mentorship. A mother of three, she served as technology and marketing chair on PTAs at Woodmore and Pointer Ridge Elementary, and Thomas G. Pullen Creative and Performing Arts Academy. At Pullen, she authored and executed two grants in the amounts of $1,000 and $5,000 for increasing family engagement and creating a courtyard garden.

Ferguson served as head tutor for middle and high school academics with Evangel Cathedral’s Tutorial Ministry. She has served Mentoring to Manhood’s brand and marketing needs pro-bono for eight years, and now serves on the board as marketing committee cochair. Ferguson lives by the mantra, “Leave a place in better condition than the way you found it.”
