I am a designer/developer hybrid who never picked a bucket. Design systems, tools, and processes are my ideas of fun. I currently reside in Los Angeles area with my lovely family.

About Chris

Chris Griffin
Over twenty years ago, I started building websites with a pirated version of Photoshop, writing mangled HTML & CSS in Notepad on my Windows 95 PC, and uploading my creations to Geocities. When this website stuff turned into a paying job, the web standards movement was picking up steam, and websites had to work in Internet Explorer 6 because Microsoft was a bunch of sadists. Although the web has come a long way since then, my passion for solving problems and building scalable solutions with current web technologies has remained constant.

As a self-learner and tech DIY-er, I have learned and developed skills across several tech disciplines. My primary area of focus is design systems. I have worked mostly for small to large startups and have had various job titles, such as "designer," "developer,". For a complete list of my experience, please check out my résumé.
