Creative Lives — Chris Chapman, design director at Droga5

Posted 17 March 2017 Interview by Marianne Hanoun

Starting out as a science, accounting and marketing student, Chris Chapman followed a somewhat unconventional route into the world of design. A ‘quick’ diploma in graphic design eventually led to design positions at advertising agencies Grey and Wieden+Kennedy where he worked for clients including Volvo, Puma and Belstaff before joining Droga5 as design director in 2016. When he’s not making dance dictionaries or putting together collages for, Chris is busy working away on personal projects. With a bold, quick-witted and cheeky creative approach, he’s made board games, illuminated seances and most recently used loose change to explain why men need feminism too.
