As a graphic designer, Imagineer Kirstin Makela visually communicates Disney stories throughout the Disneyland Resort, even designing many of the graphics for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. Appropriately enough, we are featuring her in our 60th episode of Every Role a Starring Role!

Which graphic design in this video is your favorite?


  • Any idea when the Haunted Mansion lenticular souvenir photos are coming to DL?

  • I would do anything to be doing that job, I have been a graphic designer for 15 years and working for Disney has always been my dream.

  • This is a great series, my favorite of all the videos on the channel. Some of them (the early ones?) used to have a bit on “how to get into this role.” This one doesn’t, and it would be cool if that were put back in.

    Disney cast members are the best part of the resorts.

  • Love that you guys featured someone in my field. Thought every company still kept us designers in dungeons haha.
