G'day, Chris Koch is my name and I'm a Freelance Graphic Designer based in Melbourne, Australia.

My name is Chris Koch – a professional, qualified graphic designer who specialises in multiple areas of design. These predominantly include print design, logo design, branding, web design and digital design. I love creating digital abstract art – not only for clients, but for exhibitions and art groups around the world. I’m extremely passionate about what I do.

My portfolio is more than just a portfolio.

It's not just a creative outlet, where I can showcase the work I've created for businesses around the world, but it's an opportunity to educate people about Graphic Design as a whole along the way.

Visual communication is what Graphic Design is all about – communicating a visual message. It should be considered a tool that helps you sell your premium golf balls to the best golfers in the world. It lets you sell budget, bottled milk to the masses. And, it'll even show your customers just how reputable your handyman service really is. The main point is allowing design to target the demographic you want your business to target.

My goal is to convey a message for the businesses I work for, so they can visually represent their product as accurately as possible and sell to the right people. And, in all of that, I try and create work as beautifully as I can.

Brief History:

After completing my two year Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design at a TAFE college, I made the decision to freelance full time. I started my own business, CKGD, which I launched in 2009.

Striving to create designs for my clients which are beneficial to them, their target audience is perhaps the most important peice of the graphic design puzzle. Creating something that’s visually appealing to the customer, creates a better brand for the company. The majority of my clients are small businesses, so I fill a gap in their company which they may go without otherwise.

I love working with small businesses and individuals. They’re passionate about their product, work extremely hard and are dedicated. They believe in their product, just like I believe in mine.

I’ve gained valuable experience at companies such as AFL Publishing / Slattery Media, DNA Communications and Rodeo Agency along the journey.

Every day is different being a freelancer, which is what I love – a dynamic, ever-evolving customer base.
