Chris Flack

Christchurch, New Zealand
Over the past twelve years i have had the opportunity to work with many inspiring advertising and design studios in both London and New Zealand. I have developed branding and creative outcomes for a wide variety of clients. These include The Economist Media Group, Bacardi Global, Heineken, Vodafone, Martini Racing, GE, British Gas, Kathmandu and the Christchurch Art Gallery.

Highlights of my career so far include having my re-brand of Christmas featured on the cover of The Sunday Times Magazine, developing the brand identity for the 60th anniversary of Martini Racing and finding a useful purpose for Comic Sans (much to the dismay of my design peers).

My work has been recognised in national and international awards including receiving a silver at the prestigious Clio Awards in Miami, gold at the New Zealand Best Design Awards and Best International Communication at the European Excellence Awards. Recently I had work on show at the Mexican Museum of Design (MUMEDI) as well as the OFFF Festival in Barcelona.

I believe in the power of crafting simple ideas that are well executed.
