My name is Chris Depa and I’m an Interactive Art Director from Chicago. Over the past 11 years I’ve experienced work life within a catalog and branding firm, an internet marketing agency, a wickedly bitter Chicago liqueur company and through various freelance clients. I’ve been really fortunate to have worked with great companies like National Geographic, The Field Museum, Lou Malnati’s, Jeppson’s Malört and The Republic of Tea, amongst others.
For these brands I’ve created logos, print collateral and packaging, architected online experiences, designed websites, user interfaces, and mobile apps and also created overall marketing strategies. Through all these different disciplines one thing has always fascinated me: how a brand is created and communicated effectively through them for results.
Over the years I’ve learned a lot and don’t see that stopping anytime soon. I love what I do, and I do it well.
