Partner / Experience Architect
Chris oversees all aspects of GLK’s User Experience and Design, developing strategies to define and create a positive experience for our clients and their interactive and digital programs and projects. While he believes that ‘form and function are one’, his background as an accomplished art director leads him to create visually compelling work that is both memorable and effective for our clients.
Chris has previously been contracted by Scotiabank as one of the bank’s first UX and UI designers across all of Scotiabank’s digital channels: online banking, mobile banking and the ABM network. While he has stepped away from that role to now fully devote his time to his leadership role at GLK, the experience he has gained within this major corporation has been invaluable and he brings these key learnings and strengths to all our clients at GLK.
Chris has a unique combination of skill sets as a creative professional, with a strong background in traditional print design and typography, as well as a firm foundation in all aspects of interactive strategy and design. He has been successfully navigating and bringing together both these disciplines since his student days having graduated from OCAD University with a Bachelor of Design majoring in typography and interactive design.
In his spare time, he continues to enhance his education and most recently graduated from an accelerated program at CMU in Digital Special Effects: Character and Creature design. His love of special effects and design for screen led him to explore these areas and he brings these new learnings to his work with our clients in a variety of ways from photoshoots to production videos. However, it is really his continuing desire to grow as a creative professional that continues to fuel his artistry.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
