Our Influencer’s Series Returns with Chris Converse of Codify

Chris has spent his decades long career merging graphics arts with any new advancements he can get his hands on. “I will try to learn any tech that allows me to advance my design work,” Chris says, “allowing me to provide more than just pretty pictures.”

After 22 years of commercial websites and interactive content, the graphic design and commercial art industry still draws hard lines in the sand between design and technology. Even as HTML and CSS permeate every screen in our lives, from refrigerators to car dashboards, the divide between design and tech hangs tough.

For creative folks who embrace technology, and learn to further the marriage of design and tech, there is no shortage of new opportunities. And the best part is, you possess most of the necessary skills already.

Join us as Chris discusses, and demonstrates, some of his workflows and processes for learning and implementing new technologies in his design work — which ultimately results in more work than he can handle!
