As a Creative Director, working in the industry for over 20 years, my experience has taught me to build strong relationships, to listen, continuously learn, collaborate, be brave, but ultimately to have empathy. 
I understand the importance of telling a brand narrative in a unique and distinct way and believe it is important to work by a relatively simple approach: strong ideas sharply executed, working hard to build a bond between both the brand and its audience.
My experience crosses a range of sectors and challenges, from teaching and inspiring students, to leading and motivating creative teams. I am at my best when working in collaboration, bringing together different insights, expertise and skills to build a story and creative that truly engages.
I am approachable, friendly, motivated, focused and keen to learn emerging technologies, but most of all passionate about the way good design can change things for the better.

Snap shot of my career
Nice things people have said!
"From the moment I started working with Christian I was impressed by his passion for teaching. I was really struck by his dedication to the students. he is fabulously patient, nurturing and a gifted communicator."
Holly Karlsson | Shillington US Director

"Christian has always been a dependable, inspiring and fun person to work with. We’ve remained good friends and often sound ideas off each other. This led to our joint venture ‘Live In Print’ where we stepped out of our comfort zone into the world of printers ink and wood block type."
Josh Riley | Creative Director

"Christian was my tutor at Shillington College. He always showed patience during the many many questions, humour during his presentations and encouragement in exploring our own unique styles."
Sarah Slotover | Student

"Christian had the patience of a saint and the delivery of a primary school teacher — he has that rare talent for making the most complex terms sound like real words and I think that’s what kept many of us students from going properly mad (that, and his beer fridge)."
Lynsay Clark | Student
