***Takes deep breath***

I mainly design stuff for screens but design isn't my r'aison d'etre. I'm not chasing the dollar, I only wish to be paid my worth. I don't put my headphones on when I go to work. I'm not a geek. I keep a small circle of friends. I live clean no drugs, drink or smoke. I lay golden eggs. I need 8.5 hours sleep per night. I'm a Believer, Jesus Christ is my cornerstone. I won't tell a hater later. I also do a bi-monthly podcast about design @chirpag...phew!

Design for the Summit Christopher Pinches


Digital Design

Bespoke web design from concept to completion.

I also offer Responsive / Adaptive web design in order for your businesses site to function effortlessly over tablet and mobile.

Brand Creation

A brand in 2016 should behave with diversity. Nothing like the old corporate identity paradigm that prized uniformity & consistency! I will define your businesses DNA creating a blueprint, philosophy, mission statement & core values.

Creative Direction

Creative Direction is the intersection where Art Direction & Design meet Strategy. I'm happy to work as an advisor in this role to help drive the direction of creative in it's infancy or existing creative which needs reinventing.

Illustration, Mobile Apps, CMS, Copywriting, UX Architecture, Email design & build, infographics, XHTML & CSS, Core Creative, Advertising, Social Media, Blog Writing, Print Collateral, Future Tech (Google Glass etc)

My destination is the Summit.
I will create points of difference in the marketplace for my clients and produce creative which is ‘Best in Class’.

I realise digital work needs to be relevant for NOW therefore my designs are time sensitive and aware of trends. A passion to hone my craft and produce genuine creative solutions which solve problems. Creating a remarkable future for my clients.

I place the highest value on the critical thinking phase of a project. Not rushing straight to the screen but firstly gaining a full understanding of the product / service / objectives. Coming to screen with a vision already in place but not fixed.

I will invest time into ideas. I will make time to discuss new ideas which will inform future projects. I will be informed and well read in areas outside of design (cross pollinating). I will allocate weekly time to personal development / side projects in collaboration with other designers / devs.

in Class


I’m not going to tell you about the awards I’ve won or the amazing companies I’ve worked for. Here's what I will do…

What I will tell you is that I aspire to create best in class creative. I will always be up for it. I will always question my work and exhaust all possiblities before work goes live. I will be open and honest. I will add value to everything I do. I will be conciously competant. I will have fun. I will take risks when the time is right. I will deconstruct creative to deliver it in it’s purest form. No unecessaries. And finally I will do my utmost to foster a face to face relationship with you.
