Overview

Aloha! I'm Chris–a graphic artist and designer.

Since 2009, I’ve been a freelance creative who specializes in illustrating content into iconic visuals, that don't get ignored.

Remotely from my bird chirping, feral kitty Maui studio–I work virtually with professionals and companies around the globe. Collaborating with industry connoisseurs, my artsy design skills are best utilized by staring down daunting mountains of text, and translating the info into a user friendly story.

My most popular project requests are: infographics, posters...

Service Description

I think every graphic art and design project overlays into three areas, (Illustrating Info, Visual Storytelling and Pretty Pics) but each weighs heavier in one...I know that sounds confusing.

"Illustrating Info"

Information can no longer be boring. To retain the attention of your audience, the message you're sending will be best consumed visually. Translating your data, research, and process into an user friendly, infographic, you can present your findings in an understandable format via graphics, icons and iconic illustrations.


POSTERS and ADS

Stories are important because they are adaptable. They evolve with future trends and can remind us of the past.

Being able to tell your story briefly and effectively will only strengthen your brand.


BUSINESS & EDUCATIONAL GRAPHICS
"Pretty Pics"

Pictures are the end answer and simplest way to describe graphic art and design. Everybody likes looking at interesting images. Interesting being pretty, ugly or pretty ugly. The visual solution to all projects is presenting the final creation(s) attractively, accurately and...
