HEY THERE,
I'M CHRIS.

I’m a graphic designer.


LET'S KEEP IT
SIMPLE.

I’m a graphic designer based out of Massachusetts, currently in my senior year, pursuing my bachelor’s degree at Lasell College. I consider myself, above all, a minimalist. My personal philosophy is to convey as much as I can in as little as possible. I often find myself deconstructing a problem into its simplest parts to analyze the issues that need to be addressed. An obsession with simple, clean design has been implemented in me by frontrunners in the industry and various aspects of popular culture. In my mind, simplicity evokes sophistication and an immense attention to detail: essential qualities of modern design. Simplicity is a way to stand out in a world dominated by a constant stream of information. I design because I enjoy finding creative solutions to real world problems, and lending my voice to something that does not have one.

HERE'S THE
FACTS.

Hey there, my name is Chris Lenzi, and I’m a graphic designer. Above all, I consider myself a minimalist. I love to explore creative and innovative solutions for design problems using as little information as possible. Process and ideation play a huge role in how I design. As a student of graphic design for the last seven years with a growing portfolio of real-world freelance work, I’ve learned to adapt my design aesthetic for the issue at hand, always working to find the most effective resolution. While my portfolio covers a variety of design disciplines, I have a focus in editorial design and branding. View a .pdf version here
