What my former colleagues have to say about me.

Tim Holmes, Creative Director JWT Melbourne (2014 – 2016)

“As a designer, Chris is a unique combination of talent, patience and humility all wrapped up into one. Without exception, every person who passes his desk will experience the positive effect he has on both work culture and most importantly a well crafted design.”

- Tim Holmes, Creative Director JWT Melbourne (2014 – 2016)
Annie Price, Creative Director JWT Melbourne (2015 – Present)

“Chris is tenacious, dedicated and passionate about everything he works on. He has an amazing eye for detail and quickly became my right hand man on Jetstar and other clients. The care and effort Chris puts into every job and his wonderful calm demeanour, made him the designer everyone in the office wanted to work with. We wanted to clone him. I would hire Chris again in a heartbeat.”

- Annie Price, Creative Director JWT Melbourne (2015 – Present)
Phil Kelly, Head of Design Whybin\TBWA Auckland (2013 – Present)

“Chris is a hard working senior designer with great sensitivity for type and image. He is thorough in his exploration of ideas and takes direction very well, always coming up with results that are finely crafted and sensitive to the needs of the brief.”

- Phil Kelly, Head of Design Whybin\TBWA Auckland (2013 – Present)
Dave King, ECD Whybin\TBWA Auckland (2014 – 2015)

“Chris was one of the gems I found when I moved to Whybin\TBWA. A guy whose talent is only topped by his niceness. His appreciation of great beer is just the icing on the cake.”

- Dave King, ECD Whybin\TBWA Auckland (2014 – 2015)
Toby Talbot, ECD Whybin\TBWA Auckland (2013 – 2014)

“Chris Lewis is a very passionate designer who works tirelessly to get a great result. He’s positive at all times and a real team player. He’s a good retoucher as well as designer and I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him tomorrow if I could. A lovely chap to boot.”

- Toby Talbot, ECD Whybin\TBWA Auckland (2013 – 2014)
Andy Blood, ECD Whybin\TBWA Auckland (2004 – 2013)

“Chris is the Peter Pan of Whybin\TBWA Auckland. I was there nearly 9 years and it shows. However, Chris was there for over 15 years, and he hasn’t aged a bit. If great work is the elixir of youth, then perhaps that explains it, because Chris has done so much of it. I can barely think of a campaign he wasn’t involved in. Wherever Chris chooses to go, doors will open. And he will be a huge asset to those lucky enough to open that door.”

- Andy Blood, ECD Whybin\TBWA Auckland (2004 – 2013)
