I'm Chris

I’m a graphic designer and artist living in Orange County, CA. I am always looking to pursue more opportunities to create. Creating meaningful work is my passion whether it's design, photography, or simply doodling the day away! I enjoy hiking, trying new foods, and watching shows when I am not creating.

My approach to design is to always think about the goals of the brand, target audience, and if there is something unique that can be used to differentiate it from what is already out there.

My career so far

I began my career as a student at California State University, Fullerton where I began my first job as a Graphic Designer for the Daily Titan in their Advertising office. While I was at the Daily Titan, I was promoted to Senior Graphic Designer along with the other designer as we helped modernize the Daily Titan because a lot of the processes and branding was outdated both in functionality and aesthetics. While still a student at CSUF, I helped as a designer for various events such as SIEGE 2018 (gaming expo) and Arts Week 2019.

After my time as a Senior Graphic Designer for Daily Titan Advertising, I interned at Cryptozoic Entertainment as their Design and Graphics Intern where I got a lot of experience working on creating digital stickers and trading cards for a digital collectables mobile app called Quidd. The cards and stickers from licenses Cryptozoic that I was able to design from included Rick and Morty, Steven Universe, and Adventure Time.
