Chris GattornaArt Production Manager
Growing up, Chris loved old cartoons, vintage posters, and bright, bold colors. Born and raised in Chicagoland, Chris stayed local for school and attended Columbia College Chicago, where he was able to study two of his passions – graphic design and animation! After graduating from college with a degree in Graphic Design & Animation, Chris began working graphic design in publishing, marketing, and freelancing for local governments for nearly a decade before joining the HMR team in 2017.
As the manager of the Art Department, Chris enjoys coming to work at HMR Designs because he has the opportunity to create larger than life designs, turning our clients wildest dreams into a reality.
- What is your favorite old-school cartoon? Ren & Stimpy
- Who is your favorite artist? So many to name, ranging from Ub Iwerks (the OG animator at Disney) to Ed Paschke (his neon colors almost smeared over paintings of famous figures is always a fun contrast to me).
- What is your favorite type of beer? Anything hoppy, an IPA or double IPA? Yes, please!
