Drama in the Workplace

When your daughter is in the show, can you say “No”?  Well, usually not. And so Chris Andrews, a Design Manager at ChaseDesign, found himself creating posters for his daughter’s school plays. But he soon discovered benefits beyond pleasing his offspring.

“I started to do them as way to express myself outside of work,” he said, “and to train on new techniques in Illustrator.”

The happy result is a growing collection that surrounds Chris’ workspace and prompts applause from his co-workers.

“A fun typographic experience – learning to warp the type in a way that looked like fabric.”


“Period dress, period typography. Tried to really nail the feel of the time.”

“It took 15 hours to illustrate Jekyll – to get the right body language, the period cane and doctor bag. Did a fair amount of research on that.”
