About Chris


Bio

Hello budding Graphic Designers! As noted at the top of my profile (in big bold letters) my name is Chris. I am a graphic designer and printing professional, with over 20 years of B2B and B2C experience. Through the years I have had the good fortune to work both sides of the fence, as a supplier, and client. This experience has provided me with an invaluable insight into design preparation; something that I believe is seldom taught today . . . and I’d like to pass this knowledge on to...

Hello budding Graphic Designers! As noted at the top of my profile (in big bold letters) my name is Chris. I am a graphic designer and printing professional, with over 20 years of B2B and B2C experience. Through the years I have had the good fortune to work both sides of the fence, as a supplier, and client. This experience has provided me with an invaluable insight into design preparation; something that I believe is seldom taught today . . . and I’d like to pass this knowledge on to you.

Over the years I have produce work, both design and print, for various industries: City Government, Education, Food and Beverage, Law Enforcement, Manufacturing, and Utilities, just to name a few. All of these projects started with a basic concept or idea, then were developed using the tools of the trade, e.g., Illustrator, Photoshop, etc. Just as a carpenter needs to know their tools, a graphic designer needs to know theirs too, and I want to help.

My knowledge and experience in Acrobat, Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop will get you off and running. In addition, my experience with digital photography, Camera Raw and HDR (High Dynamic Range Imaging) will be an added bonus!

He really knows his subject

Another great lesson with Chris. He is extremely knowledgeable, and will go through the why's of what he is instructing. I always feel I have gotten more than my money's worth when I finish a session with him.

Chris is awesome!

Chris is one of the best tutors I have ever had. He is patient and is extremely knowledgeable! The most important is that he really cares about me learning Indesign and Illustrator. I have no graphic design experience, so it is a hard task to try to teach someone from scratch. I am glad Chris excepted the challenge. Looking forward to learning more.
