I want to say thank you to all my clients this past year. I know 2020 has been quite a roller coaster for everyone, individually and for businesses. With such an uncertain future, it’s a truly terrifying and trying time that lay ahead of us. Keep moving forward though! Perseverance my friends.
I’ve been an artist my entire life. My mother was an oil painter so ever since I was a little tike I’ve been fascinated with the idea of creating. Taking a small idea and manifesting it into reality has always been truly rewarding to me. I can remember dreaming about working for Disney as a young child. Even though that never panned out I was still able to use my artistic ability to live the life I was meant to live. I get to work from home with my Rottweiler Ivan and together we help bring our clients ideas to life. I live a simple life with my wife Kelsey and soon to be child on the way. So despite all the worldly hiccups that lay ahead, I’m very much looking forward to the future. I’ve worked as an independent creative for nearly a decade, boy how time flies. Over those years of personal growth I’ve learned how to become a better artist and designer, a better friend to my pals, a better brother and son to my family and most of all just connect with people on a more personal and spiritual level. We are all humans and have a boundless amount of potential within all of us, individually and collectively. So I’m really looking forward to another ten years and everything it brings.
Some clients I meet come and go and it’s nothing more than an exchange of services for currency. And that’s totally fine, even expected at times. But every once in a while you get the opportunity to build a friendship with a client and the relationship grows. Your paths converge and you get to expand beyond just creating a logo or website for them. You share stories and experiences, a few laughs and sometimes heartfelt ideas about the world. No matter what our level of connection, I’m truly grateful because each and everyone of you allow me to learn and grow and fulfill my own dreams. For that I’m forever in your debt. Thank you so much for taking the time to have a conversation with me. I look forward to working with you all again in the near future.
– Cheers, ChrisRead more

This is not finalized but we’re moving closer towards a finished product.
Here is a logo design for a Colorado Springs company. A current client of mine is starting a new business venture. Without giving away any details, I’d like to share the logo design and primary application. The background design does all the heavy lifting here. This concept is based off of adult coloring books. Knowing that the background was going to be very busy, we needed to design a logo that was going to be simple and bold enough to stand out. The font is one-off, built from scratch specific for this project. The goal for this company is to be internationally known, so we needed a brand that was clean and professional and easily adaptable.
