I’m a San Francisco-based design director, with experience leading design for some of the world’s biggest companies.
I have worked across most areas of design and research but I get the most enjoyment from stuff like...
I’m a plan guy. I love diving in to new domains and setting a strategy to tackle big problems. The toughest part is choosing where to start as there’s always so much to get excited about.
My favorite projects challenge the current state and take big swings. A great design vision should make you both excited and nervous, but also show why it’s the right thing to do (and how to prove it).
Design systems are at the heart of all modern design projects, or at least they should be. It’s scary how much I love an organized, systemic design. It’s just so satisfying and efficient.
Directing is fun and all, but sometimes I want to get my hands dirty to explore ideas and flesh out concepts. Workflows, edge cases, micro interactions...a great vision doesn’t work without the details.
I’ve found that teams are at their best (and happiest) when everyone feels empowered to freely explore their creativity. Great ideas come from anywhere and anyone, not just “creatives” or senior staff.
Unfortunately, most of my work is under NDA and can’t be shared here. So, you’ll have to settle for this fun client list for now (but let’s talk).
I’m Chris, a design director at a UX research and design agency called Blink, where I’ve been leading transformational design projects for some of the world’s biggest companies.
Over the last 10+ years, I’ve gained experience across all areas of design and research while working on extremely tough design challenges with extremely talented people. Lately, I’ve spent most of my time on design strategy and envisioning, but I still love getting into the details.
I’d love to tell you more about what I’ve been working on, so feel free to get in touch. Talk soon!
