Chris Bolton, a British Canadian born 1975, is a Helsinki based art director and graphic designer. He came to Finland originally on a student exchange program and has since worked for several design and advertising agencies as well as for Marimekko. Majority of the time has he spent as a freelancer for clients like Kiasma, Arabia, Nokia, Levi’s, New York Times , etc.

Chris considers himself being a commercial artist who works for the clients’ needs and not his own. Designers are often anonymous, but their work still achieves a vivid personality like Chris’. His identity is maintained by a consistently high standard of problem solving rather than by a consistent technique or style.
