If you read the intro on the home page, you already know: my name is Chris Gottardo, and I am a graphic designer. I’ve been doing this design thing since about mid-2013, and I think I’ve gotten pretty good at it.

I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. I’ve spent most of my professional career thus far as a designer on the marketing team at Amrock, a sister company to Quicken Loans. Prior to that, I worked as a designer for Wayne State, interned at Hour Media, and also did some freelance work through Vitamin T in Royal Oak, MI.

In my free time, you can find me doing typical dad activities, such as:

  • Telling my son’s friends to stay off my lawn
  • Getting excited about trips to the hardware store
  • Turning off lights my family members have left on and commenting that we’re not made out of money

Anyway, that’s enough about me for now. If you want to tell me a little more about yourself and what kind of design work you’re looking to have done, you can get in touch with me by emailing
