While working at EBDA, he created identities, collateral, books and websites for such clients as Union Square Hospitality Group, Community Services Society, The New School, Random House Publishing, Gordon Parks Foundation, and Hachette Publishing Group.
Chris pursued his own clients under the studio name Isotope 221 whenever time allowed. Over the years, he has gained a diverse range of clients from fashion designers to independent music labels to financial consultants.
His design work has garnered several industry design awards and appeared in numerous publications over the years, including HOW, Print, I.D., Communication Arts, Dwell, and The New York Times. He is also a member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) and the Type Directors Club.
