WHO IS CHRIS

I’m a designer of all trades and a firm believer that to be a great designer, one must remain well rounded, open-minded + motivated to fuel curiosity through the combination of determination, talent & collaboration.

As a designer I am influenced by everything around me; through my experience, acquaintances, through what is new and what seems foreign. It has been said that kids are the most creative people on earth due to their unbiased opinions and limitless creativity. It is through this type of thinking that we can truly create great design.

I have always held the opinion that the more ways you can look at a problem, the more complete the solution will be. I highly value my career as a multi-faceted designer, and use its versatility when approaching new projects to create unique results.

Throughout this site you will see samples of my work as a art director, graphic designer, industrial designer, architect and web designer. All fields which I have been honored to work in and will continue to strive for excellence and innovation.

Cheers.

ART DIRECTION

The balance between wants and needs often comes down to listening and interpretation. Not only identifying the right audiences and the proper form of design needed but management of all the individual pieces to form a strong and cohesive message is what allows projects to be embraced.

BRANDING

From the simple logo at the local bakery to the complex pages of a corporate signage manual, branding incorporates a wide range of information. However the objective remains the same, to reflect and encompass the goals, personality, and character of its subject.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Ergonomics and human proportions provide flexibility to a design’s form and function. Analyzing special relationships and population trends will further influence a design’s success of catering to the vast majority of the population.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Graphic design tells its stories through imagery, color, and layout. Some graphics provide pertinent information, yet others are used to spark feelings. No matter what the intent, the overall goal remains the same - to make a connection with the audience to create a memorable experience.

PACKAGING DESIGN

Packaging can be a very influential communication tool. The look, feel, and touch of a package help the product stand out on a shelf while, brand recognition, lifestyle choices and perceived value create emotional bonds. Through these properties and values packages form a connection with consumers.

WEB DESIGN

Web sites are the best way to connect with people throughout the world. Because of their flexibility, they have become one of the most influential ways to pass along information. A website is a powerful tool, but must be well organized and well designed to affectively capture an audience.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

Through each of our 5 senses, we create experiences. Some of these may be visual experiences influenced by light and shadow while others are physical experiences, such as the comfort of a piece of furniture. Each experience helps form memories, which influence and enhance our everyday lives.
