About Christopher Barr
I majored in Advertising & Graphic Design at Columbus College of Art & Design. After graduating in 2008, with a BFA, I went on to design at the global agency FITCH before finding my niche at Resource Ammirati, designing mobile applications and responsive websites for nearly four years.
After Resource Ammirati I worked in New York, NY, with a variety of start-ups. At Gilt, I oversaw the mobile design work for iPhone, iPad, Android, and the occasional responsive site. Nearly 50% of Gilt’s revenue came through our mobile apps and mobile optimized site. Now, I help established brands, start-ups, and entrepreneurs launch engaging products.
Informed by process—my approach is iterative, cycling from idea, to creation, validation, and back to idea. Because authentic experiences take a curious mind to solve. Successful products are customer driven and data proven.
For me, form is no good if it doesn’t function. I strive for both while creating products that customers enjoy coming back to again-and-again. Ultimately, it’s not about one perfect design it’s about creating something fantastic and then making it better.
