Hello, I'm Chris Spooner*. I design stuff.
In a nutshell, that means that I sit at my shiny Apple computer all day long creating snazzy designs for cool folks from around the world. It's great!
However, it is much more complicated than that, there’s all this business about typography, composition, grids, space, form, colour theory, semantics and usability to consider (and that’s just for starters). Luckily I’ve spent my lifetime so far completely filling my brain with all this creative goodness, so I can make things that not only look cool, but also solve a problem and make things work in the real world.
I mostly earn my living by creating custom brands and logo designs from scratch, as well as designing and building high quality websites and blogs, but I also enjoy producing the odd t-shirt graphic, illustration or character design. I pride myself in having the nerdy skills to build top notch creations online, as well as being knowledgeable in the print side of design.
If you’ve heard of me before, chances are it’s through my blogs, interviews on the web or maybe from a magazine or book feature. I’ve been fortunate enough to appear in a range of publications both on and offline.
You’ll have probably guessed that blogging is a big part of my life. Just take a look at Blog.SpoonGraphics, Line25 or my Twitter profile and you’ll see how crazy I am about design. Blogging about the topic has been a fantastic way for me to share tips and resources to others and to network with like-minded individuals from around the world – It has also generated some amazing exposure as a designer and brought in some exciting projects and opportunities.
