About Chris Hall Design

My remote studio is fully equipped with the very latest technology & Adobe Creative Cloud software – ready to handle even the most demanding of tasks.
Most of all, if you’re looking to outsource your next project then Chris Hall Design could just be your man! Why not get in touch today and let’s talk business. My goal is cutting costs – not corners!

" I worked with Chris on producing the printed literature for SICK! Festival during 2019. I found him to be incredibly committed & highly skilled despite a difficult working brief and the end results were amazing. We were absolutely delighted with the finished product, which helped give SICK! Festival the platform to shine. Chris ensured delivery on time & for this we can’t thank him enough. I also found while working with Chris Hall Design that he is completely accomplished in the world of design. He provided critical thinking and creative feedback in the early stages to really help us shape the project – our best one yet! "Sick! Festival

" It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with Chris over the last year. Having rebranded, Chris was quickly able to understand our brand requirements and develop and evolve our guidelines as we started to create collateral. Chris is a brilliant designer, providing thought out solutions (sometimes with multiple options to choose from), and clear explanations and recommendations. I would, without hesitation, work with Chris Hall Design again. "Zellis

" Chris Hall Design worked quickly and efficiently to a specific brief and provided continuity throughout each design piece, to create a collection of work for us to distribute out to our customers with pride. Thank you. "ALFA TRAVEL
" Chris has an eye for detail. This can be down to the simple flow of a logo being unaligned, through to the understanding and imputation of full blown corporate guidelines across all medias. His ability to spot these mistakes has not only saved money pre-print, but has also allowed the delicate relationship between agency and clients to grow from strength to strength. His attitude towards work is always professional and he’s one of those people who is a pleasure to have in the studio. He is highly recommended for complex transport and artwork projects where his talents show through for both people management, artwork control and overseeing a project pedantically through from beginning to end effortlessly.
