Live from the stage/my workspace

Chris Parks

I have been a professional creative since 2002, working on numerous projects from weddings to commercials and music videos. I’m a self-described “jack of all trades” type that prefers to take the DIY route as opposed to outsourcing creative needs. A one stop shop if you will!

I’m self-taught in Photoshop, Illustrator and Premiere Pro and create my own videos, photos, and graphics daily. Staying fresh on software is key! Experimenting and applying new techniques to older mediums like photography is paramount, too. Using textbook techniques that capture the best composition of an image and incorporating newer methods of Photoshop manipulation is the most captivating application.

My creative approach—no matter the medium—is to find an intersection between my clients needs and my personal style. When it comes to graphic designs, I do several iterations on each project and ultimately let the client decide what they love the most.

Ultimately, it’s about creating memorable images.
