We understand business - the daily frustrations and the long term rewards.

Chris runs Tinder-Box's very own design house. Clients often ask us to transform their training materials into something interesting and fun and even a little bit funky....this is where Chris gets his crayons out and thinking hat on.

If your team or leadership programmes need work books, journals and branded materials to give it that extra pizzazz this is where our design house can help.

Armed with a degree in Graphic Design from Falmouth College of Arts Chris headed to London, and the bright lights of Sloane Square, to join Curious Design Consultants working on lots of big exciting brands. After many years of monitoring the surf forecast he realised that there was never going to be a 'big surf day' on the River Thames and so headed back to the West Country where he landed the role of Senior Designer at Gul International.

As a specialist in brand identities, digital media and publishing, Chris has a unique ability to work with clients to take the spark of an idea and bring it to life in a fun and fresh way whilst maintaining the integrity of their brand. His experience means he's at home working on the detail of a piece of branding identity to projects which require the creation of multiple pieces of collateral.

No surprises that in true Tinder-Box style, Chris is amphibious and when he's not coming up with amazing design solutions for clients he can be found riding the surf in the West Country or out with his camera capturing some shots of the of the UK coastline.

I'm bound, as a designer, to push you further than you want to go!
