Now well into its 20th season, The Chris Roe Show has something for everybody. Especially if you’re a somebody looking for an experienced, award winning art director with a GCD/CD level background running pitches, guiding accounts big and small, or shepherding teams and clients toward doing bigger, better, and more creative work no matter where it needs to be seen.
Chris began developing TCRS at a young age when, during frequent visits to his father's print production studio in Chicago, he thumbed through stacks of Communication Arts. There was something about what he saw that looked like a cross between serious art and a lot of fun. Eventually, his fathered hired him as very, very cheap labor and he learned to “cut type” for some of Chicago’s most respected creatives, which allowed him to see some of the most amazing work in the industry before it hit the streets. Eventually, he wanted to try and do amazing work himself.
So, Chris ran off to Atlanta to attend The Portfolio Center and subsequently became an inaugural graduate of The Creative Circus as an art director.
Since then he’s held full-time or freelance positions in Minneapolis, Denver, Virginia, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco and, of course, his beloved hometown of Chicago. Chris has been fortunate to produce work in Prague, Portland, New Zealand, New York, Australia, L.A., both ends of Canada, and the middle of nowhere (yes, it exists).
As a creative and creative director Chris still loves the constant challenge of creating as well as helping teams evolve an idea until everyone in the room is convinced it’s the best our industry will ever see. Whether an idea is executed traditionally, digitally, experienced live or with a VR strapped to someone's face, The Chris Roe Show takes great pride and care in helping an idea come to life through all areas of execution and post production.
Chris is currently based out of Chicago, but owns several different sized suitcase and a current passport, which makes traveling anywhere a snap. If you think The Chris Roe Show can be of help to your agency, project, pitch, or just want to know a little more about it, please don't hesitate to contact him.
