My name is Chris Milstead and I have been working as a
graphic designer for the past 5 years. Working at O’neill has given me alot of experience
and knowledge in the action sports industry. When I started at La
Jolla Group as an intern, I worked on projects for moto, skate and
surf, so I am able to adapt to different styles.
At my current job I wear the hats of both production artist
and graphic artist. I have extended knowledge in color theory,
screen printing process, tech packs, merch guides and PLM, I
am also in charge of photoshoping all styles for the catalog that
weren’t shot in the photo studio on time. I also split my time doing
tee shirt graphics, I take art direction very well and have a great
understanding of what graphics go with what garments.
