ABOUT ME

Christopher A. Widlowski Graphic Designer

(702) 509-0304 | cwidlowski@gmail.com www.behance.net/cwidlowski

As a graphic designer, I feel that it is a never-ending process of being a student to the environment revolving around us. It enables me to take parts from what I see and be able to implement the items I collect and add them in my own way into my designs. I live, breathe and sleep design. It is embedded in everything I do, whether it be through graphics, interacting with people, walking, reading, photography or learning. Because of this, I think it has helped shaped me to be who I am today, a humble leader, a follower of good nature, a strong soul, a team player, and a hard headed Muay Thai fighter. I have been told that I am a person with great work ethics, trusting, funny, reliable, and a motivating person. I work hard and stand up for what I believe in. I am not afraid to speak my mind if I feel that it is worth it. I love learning, seeking adventures, traveling the world, loving my family and friends, snowboarding, fighting, working out and long walks on the beach (David Hasselhoff voice).
