Chris B. Payne

Graphic Designer

Las Vegas, NV, USA
I'm a sushi-loving father of two, sci-fi fanatic, Disney-watching Graphic Designer. Leveraging my super-human creative problem-solving powers and my highly collaborative lead-by-example attitude I'm able to inspire others to learn more, do more, dream bigger, and, of course, meet deadlines while exceeding expectations.

My ability to remain calm and level-headed under pressure and being very easy to get along with make me an excellent team player. My extensive experience with project management and overseeing other creatives make me an outstanding leader.

Quality and efficiency are always my top priorities. I'm always looking for ways to reduce the amount of time spent on the mundane and repetitive tasks so that attention can be redirected to other areas.

My expansive skill set is attributed to my visual memory and my ability to learn and master new skills very quickly (sometimes within hours). I have a passion for learning new things and believe that nobody should ever stop learning and growing. Every person in a team has valuable knowledge/skills that the rest of the team can learn and benefit from.
