- Chris Garrett
- Creative Director
Chris founded Abstraktion in 2010, after gaining a wealth of experience working with household brands like the BBC and CNET. After starting his first company at just 16, Chris sold CGMedia in 2009, going on to co-found Bexmedia, a video production studio known for working with the likes of BUPA and The Sun. When Chris later sold his shares in Bexmedia, he became one of the founders and Creative Director of Abstraktion, responsible for design output across the company. Working across Information Architecture, UI Design and Branding, Chris fuses youthful creativity with a rare commercial drive and a high level of technical knowledge, enabling him to create beautiful work which helps a wide range of companies realise their business objectives.
