Chris Madden

Chris is the Einstein of graphic design. He is the mad scientist in the office, who sits and schemes all of the concepts he can visually concoct. Not only is Chris an incredibly talented graphic designer, but he also has a secret weapon: illustration skills. Though he may appear prim and proper, his fun, zany, and occasionally dark illustrations reveal his intricacies. At Coburn Design, we love to utilize Chris’s expertise in graphic design and illustration, his competency with flash, as well as his accuracy with pre-press production. We also love to hear the stories of his adorable family.
