Son of a MadMan (seriously, literally) Chris Parker (aka. Brother of Invention) was immersed in creative thinking from an early age.
Raised and educated in the UK, he began his career designing record covers and promo art for labels such as 4AD, Rough Trade and Virgin.
He then moved to the US and via design (and a little MadMan osmosis) found a home in advertising.
Over two decades he progressed from Designer to Art Director, sometime Writer, sometime one-man AD/W team, occasional Manifesto Composer, oftentimes Creative Director and/or Strategist, all the time Conceptualist/Sensationist, working in both the analog and digital spaces.
On the agency side: BBDO, DDB, JWT, FCB, Ammirati, Ogilvy, TWBA/Chiat Day, Wieden+Kennedy, Riney, Rubin Postaer, Yellowhammer and more shops on more clients and accounts than you can shake a stick at.
On the (working directly with) client side: Occupant Films, Richard Avedon, Rogue Ales, RumbaTime, ThinkIndie, Tower Records, Interview Magazine, The Body Shop, Coalition of Independent Music Stores, Virgin, Rough Trade, 4AD and more.
In 2012 he cofounded Interplanetary, a New York based, multimedia communications agency, though he continued to operate mostly virtually - as he has for the last 20 years - from a base in Idaho.
These diverse experiences, combined with his deep roots in art, film, fashion and music, lay the foundation for his holistic yet unique perspective.
A pragmatic artist and idea(l)ist, Chris brings big, offbeat concepts together to create engaging brand stories and experiences with practical applications.
Ideas are out there for everything.
