Hey there, my name is Christian Westphal.
Here are a few things about me:
I am a multi-disciplined graphic designer, illustrator, and developer running a small creative studio in Memphis, TN.
I studied Graphic Design and Printmaking at the University of Memphis.
I work on a wide variety of projects in multiple mediums, with the bulk of my work consisting of print design, web design, illustration, and branding.
I believe the combination of good relationships and good design will always produce successful results that can help businesses and individuals thrive. This philosophy is at the core of everything I do.
I was born in San Francisco and raised in Memphis, TN.
Both of my parents are European ( German and English ) making my brother and I first-generation Americans.
Before I started making a living pleasing eyeballs, and while I was in school learning how to please eyeballs, I worked in restaurant kitchens for 14 years. During that time I built a solid work ethic and experienced some of my most important life lessons.
I live with my girlfriend, our 3 cats, and 1 dog. I’m still waiting for one of them to get a job and contribute, jeez.
My favorite movie is still the first movie I remember seeing in the theaters; Sneakers.
I think that empathy is the key to moving humanity forward.
My work is not for everyone, and that’s ok.
I think making work that matters takes a considerable amount of courage.
I’m passionate about making work that helps not only the people I work with but also the people they work with and serve every day.
