Chris Fava


"The undeniable fact with Chris is you can teach folks a program or even an industry but not to be 10 years ahead of their time. That’s invaluable and that’s Chris. He’s one of the world changers."
John Paul deJoria, Self-Made Billionaire and Owner of Paul Mitchell


I’m a conceptual, driven and extremely versatile AD/Designer with an eclectic visual vocabulary and a playful sense of humor. I’m good at what I do and I love sharing that with others.

I’ve directed/designed 360 campaigns, led in-house and client presentations and have won numerous accounts for start ups to billion dollar companies. I’ve developed original content working with designers, marketing departments, vendors, executives and superstars. My recent, unique experience at Wimbledon has given me the opportunity to creatively produce under the most intense situations for millions - pressure not present in office-life. And each time I raised the bar. Which always is my goal.

My path is unique. I've taken time off to travel and discover other cultures and areas of design which has given me a new perspective and fresh angles. In 2013 I traveled around the world to get back to who I was (I thought) but in reality I found out who I wanted to be. Those experiences have only made me a better leader, designer and human.

I have over 10 years experience of lead design and art direction at a senior level. As well as teaching Graphic Design at SMC for 4 years (also known as the 4 hour comedy hour). I would like to work for a company that has a good heart, helps others and wants to have fun while producing great work. In return I’ll bring creativity, grit, empathy, laughs, and a passion to grow every day.
