I am in the process of redesigning this website to update all of my current work, as well as reflect changing trends (and make things easier on myself). I know it’s a bit outdated at present, but I will be bringing it back better and stronger.

Well its been seven months since Apple dropped iOS7 on us. There was much fuss made over its sometimes yucky color palette, its eschewing of buttons for text links, its thin fonts, and its minimalistic approach.

I recently did some site wrap/Ad work for Page 2 Music, a new music label, featuring their first signed band, 3 Pill Morning. They can be seen on Revolver Magazine and Blabbermouth right now on the home pages as the side ads. I enjoyed the project, small though it was.
I apologize for the lack of updates. I’ve been producing an album, so my focus was shifted for a bit. I will be putting some new artwork up soon: Throwing Gravity’s album artwork, Hearts of Saints new album artwork, and a branding project for Olivet Baptist Church.
Chris Herron Design has made a deal with the Devil…to reshape the way Hell is perceived by mortal men. Until now, Hell was seen as a place of darkness, filled with suffering, constant exposure to open flame, weeping and gnashing of teeth — but no longer!
Back in May, Sobe launched its’ new advertising campaign “Try Everything” in partnership with the agency Motive in Denver. Tagged an “experiential campaign” it aims to increase awareness of its new flavors.
