Christy Montgomery

Associate Principal

Christy Montgomery is currently working as an associate principal at RSM Design. She uses analysis of the site context combined with creative thinking to build intuitive wayfinding, compelling narratives, and deeply meaningful connections. She is passionate about maintaining a consistent vision from concept through final installation.

Christy approaches each project with care, consideration, and attention to detail. She starts every project by defining the unique challenges of the site and its users. This process starts with listening, research, and careful analysis. Once this foundation is in place, the next step is getting fired up with inspiration. Every step thereafter fuses what's possible with what's needed to truly move people. Christy's mission is to improve and transform places to the benefit of the communities they serve.
