He brings over thirty-five years of award-winning local, national and international branding, graphic design, and environmental graphic design and wayfinding experience to the firm. A love for art and creation has been a constant thread in his life and that passion is evident in his exceptional body of design work.

 

Born and raised in Lexington, Massachusetts he moved to Miami in 1985 after graduating with honors from Boston University with an SFA in graphic design. Chris served for many years as the Managing Creative Director at Tom Graboski Associates, Inc.—a successful design studio in Coral Gables, Florida—where he designed and managed environmental graphic design & wayfinding projects for the firm’s largest clients including Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Carnival Cruise Line, Universal Studios Florida, Biltmore Hotel, and Celebrity Cruise Line.

 

Over the past seventeen years, Chris and yazi have completed complex environmental graphic design & wayfinding projects for a variety of public and corporate projects including the Town of Surfside, City of Pembroke Pines, City of Fort Lauderdale, Doral Design District, Downtown Kissimmee Master Plan, CocoWalk, Aventura Mall, Miami River Greenway, Bayfront Park Master Plan, Aventura ParkSquare, Mercato Naples, CityPlace, Calder Casino & Racetrack, The Cushman School, Fontainebleau Aviation, the University of Miami, and Town Square Las Vegas.

In 1996, Chris designed the award winning brand identity for the Miami City Ballet. In that same year he also won a competition to design the poster for the Miami Olympic Soccer venue, a part of the Summer Olympic games in Atlanta.

 

In 2000 and 2001, Chris served as the Art Director for the Miami International Film Festival and was a member of the festival’s organizing committee. He also established the Festival’s first web site in 1996, and remained its principal designer through 2001.
