Hi, my name is

Chris Aykroid

and I do creative work in Sussex, WI.



I have been passionate about graphics...since collecting stickers as a kid. I think it's always fascinating how form, color,  light and shadow come together to make a stunning, visual image that communicates.


I have been creating logos, web and print graphics, displays and interfaces for the Point of Purchase, Sign, Print and Web business' for many different customers for over... well, lets just say that it's a little while.


Is there any way I can help with the production of your product or service? I can work on-site or remotely.


Have a look over some of my work, I have selected some of my favorite projects to show...most fairly recent. If you have a question or want to get a hold of me for some other reason, use the contact form and I will get right back to you.


Thanks for looking!

Printed items can be in many forms, all valuable to your marketing efforts. It could be as simple as a business card or as comprehensive as a presentation folder, brochure or magnetic calender. I can give you a quote as-well-as ideas.

An Avatar to be an ambassador for you online, a character to be part of your brand or to represent a product or service. Maybe a caricature of your staff to make a nicely done "about us" page on your website or publication.

Your website may be your primary marketing effort. It is accessible by the world and can be the beginning of all of your print, branding and advertising efforts. It all starts with your interface. Here are a few recent projects

Illustrate your ideas and bring them to life, information can be made more entertaining and understood, products that don't yet exist are on display, technical details can be shown, expensive photo shoots can be avoided...all with good illustration.

Display Work The Point-of-Purchase is where the customer is ready to buy. These concepts are placed right in the marketplace itself. This specialty uses creative design and (mostly), plastic polymers, various molding techniques and good placement that display aspects of the products to make the buying experience a lot more informative.


Trade Show exhibits can be another way to show off your excellence. Whether it be a table top or full blown, floor display.

Photo Retouch your photographs that are not quite there, it may be too expensive to re-shoot or maybe just impossible. A much better solution is to simply retouch the photo to get it exactly where you need it. Subject, concept , color, Pow!


Cinemagraphs are another way to pop your photo themes online. It's an interesting effect using low bandwidth ...You can see some examples of a recent project here.
