About the speaker
Christopher is a freelance graphic designer, letterer & visual artist in Toronto. Christopher uses analog techniques of brush lettering evoking the pre-digital commercial arts style of the 1940s-1960s. When he’s not planning an event or teaching a workshop for Ligatures (his local typography meet-up club) or collecting antique signage samples around the city, you’ll find him working on new lettering projects at his Ossington studio. His work has been featured in Spacing Magazine, Uppercase Magazine & Flare Magazine. Christopher attended the Alberta College of Art & Design, and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Calgary.

VisualTalks present information your audience needs, in the way they can process it best. VisualTalks are whiteboard illustrations (or graphic recordings) to enhance understanding and retention, increase participant engagement and create concise and beautiful summaries of information.
We listen carefully, process what we hear, and draw it on the spot. We capture it truthfully, and present it in a way that facilitates further thought and discussion.
