About

San Diego native Chris Toombs is a jack of all trades. Graphic designer by day and craftsman by night, he spends evenings and weekends exploring the tactile side of design, trying out new techniques in his search to marry message to medium. Chris spent his formative years surfing and swimming, and both remain passions today. He regularly commutes to work by bicycle and enjoys spending time with his wife, Monica, and his baby girl, Betsy.
