My mama calls me Chris.
I'm a designer, illustrator, and content creator from Birmingham, AL. I'm a husband and father of two wonder lads.
I majored in Graphic Design at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. After leaving school I partnered with a business development officer to form a boutique marketing firm called Elevated Mind Group. After an excellent 3 years of working with EMG I decided to strike out on my own with ChrisHardy.co so that I could explore new kinds of clients.
I balance my contracted branding work with personal creative work, like illustration and music production. It gives me a fresh perspective on creating concepts and allows me to never get bored with what I'm doing. This also assist me in offering a all-inclusive approach to my clients, where I can address many of their content needs in-house or hire the right freelancer.
I'm a huge fan of collaboration and that is one of my key motivators when choosing to work with a brand, how well we mesh. I'm not an auteur with a preset vision for your brand. Instead, I'm more like a jazz musician, I'm ready to create something unique, fun, and exciting with each collaborator. I'm not afraid to try new things or fail doing so, it's not in my DNA.
ARE YOU READY?
