I am Chris Plosaj.

Crisp Design & Direction is the creative consultancy and studio of Chris Plosaj. (pronounced like the American anthem, "Plo—saj can you see!") I'm a multidisciplinary designer, insightful innovator and brand storyteller. I have a strong understanding of conceptual thinking and craft, and I'm able to translate big ideas across multiple channels.



“The function has to be the brand.
If it works well, it has to be branded at the same time.”


I strive to produce meaningful, innovative media that fuels engagement between brands and their audiences. I focus on a user-centric design process that begins with me falling in love with the problem, not the solution. I take an interdisciplinary approach by examining many disciplines and categories at a time. Fusing research, strategic design and creative ideation enables me to craft visual communications that successfully deliver a crisp message.


Since early childhood, I have been interested in the pursuit of problem solving, creative innovation, technology, learning and making. A resident of Hong Kong for 15 years, I moved to Canada in 2007 to study Media & Design. Upon graduating with Honors, I began collaborating with many great brands, agencies, startups and people. My work has received awards from Applied Arts, RGD, Critical Mass, and has been featured in various design publications.
