Chris Glass

Chris Glass is a 36 year-old photographer, web aficionado, web designer, industrial designer, designer-designer, and bearded nuzzler living in New Richmond, Ohio. He keeps an entertaining personal website, and in his spare time, he devises schemes to create more spare time.

A sample blog entry goes something like this:
How to catch a mouse without a mousetrap. It's cute, it's humane, it's Chris. You can see his industrial design roots in his sketching. The illustration reminds me that I love architect/designer off-the-cuff sketches and handwriting. They have a pointy, hatchy quality to them, as if the entire thing were made out of hay.

He's involved in making T-shirts, some of which take off and some of which fizzle. I particularly like this failed idea, "He-Man and the Masters of the Univers," because it's about fonts:

"So I had this t-shirt concept (above) that's been brewing for a long while... It's a humorous take on the font Univers (which makes up the background grid with its family of font weights). The design seemed too limited in appeal so it never came to be, but I still have a deep love for it."
At age 25 Chris Glass was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. It's kind of interesting to see his timeline. Overall, it's a very well designed site about an interesting person. A for awesome.

I'll leave you with a few latest photos from Chris:
