Cool story, bro

Christophe Nguyen

Hello there! I’m Christophe Nguyen, a passionate web / graphic designer and photographer who likes his poutine with Belgian fries.

I consider myself extremely lucky to have a job that allows me to do what I love on a daily basis. Meeting new people and learning during each new design process keep me striving to get the most out of every project I undertake.
As an effective team player, I rely on open communication and collaboration to understand my clients’ goals.

When I’m not playing with pixels, there’s a good chance you’ll find me practicing Krav Maga / BJJ, performing improv or photo shooting different scenes and people with my Canon 7D.

These days, I tend to dabble in web programming languages and frameworks such as HTML5, Ruby on Rails, jQuery and Sass/Compass, since front-end development has recently become an interest of mine.

I would love to hear from you, whether it be to chat or work on a project together. Feel free to drop me a line!
