Hello, my name is Chris and I am a talented, enthusiastic and passionate Designer from Stoke-on-Trent who is now based in London.
Since graduating from Staffordshire University in 2009 with a 1:1 in Graphic Design. I’ve been able to freelance for a variety of agencies such as Reform Creative, Dinosaur and Jackson Hammond. While there I was able to work on a selection of projects from branding to packaging.
Currently, I work as a Senior Designer for Crisis. I also worked as the Designer as part of the in-house creative team for Macmillan Cancer Support. Where I’ve been involved in designing materials such as the information booklets, which allowed Macmillan to communicate better with people living with cancer, an engaging and friendly booklet that contained a very sensitive subject matter, end of life and the Volunteers handbook. I’ve also been involved in developing various elements of the Macmillan brand. Including the development of our icon style.
‘Chris is a fantastic designer – the kind of designer that sees the little details to make a project perfect. He’s extremely talented and super speedy. He ensures the brief is met and always generates lots of ideas that all fit the brief. I highly recommend Chris and he is an extreme pleasure to work with.’
Kath Simpson, Design Manager at Breast Cancer Care
‘Chris is an amazingly talented designer, he’s chock full of wonderfully creative ideas and a demon with a mac. At Macmillan, he frequently ran with ideas and pushed them as far as he could. He’s fantastic at meeting with clients while taking them measuredly through any kind of explanation of his designs he always gets to know what their issues and concerns are, which for a designer is key but so few are actually really, truly adept at. I would wholeheartedly recommend Chris.’
Corin Martin, Creative Director at Narrative Design
‘Chris came to with Jackson Hammond on our work experience programme and in that time he created some really great work on live briefs for some of our biggest clients. He has the ability to think ‘outside’ the brief and create really thought-provoking graphic solutions. As well as his creative skills – Chris is very approachable, a good listener and eager to learn.’
Sheila Hammond, Director at Jackson Hammond
