Experience education

Since 2013, I’ve been helping Outward Bound California create visual solutions for a variety of touchpoints. Whether it’s developing a new identity for a capital campaign, illustrate a custom map, or designing an annual report, I’ve been their trusted resource in all things design.

A campaign for growth

The Boundless capital campaign was all about activating potential, stepping outside of your comfort zone, and having the courage to forge ahead. The logo system and marketing materials projected a bold and motivating feel – integrating iconic California locations while strengthening the Outward Bound parent brand.

We have worked with Chris for over 6 years. He knows our brand in and out, is an incredible creative partner on projects ranging from website infographics to event concept design. I truly couldn't do what we do without him as part of our team. Time and time again he delivers quickly and with a high level of care and excellence - I have and would recommend him to anyone else in the non-profit space!
