Chris Rankin

Principal – Creative

You can take the boy out of Florida, but you can’t get him out of the Apple store. When he does return from his second home, Chris is principal and art director for Creative Spot. A CCAD graduate, Chris has mastered many aspects of design throughout the years. He has an outstanding knowledge of the printing industry as well as a keen sense for typography. Chris is also our go-to guy when it comes to trade show displays. And if duty calls, he’ll start building our furniture out of bathroom parts again.

Serious in nature—which in turn is quite funny—he’s a talented fine artist as well as designer. He also once bred fruit flies, which he’s quick to point out “is not easy.” His curiosity and enthusiasm for just about everything produces some amazing award-winning work.
