about

According to older family members Christopher Coley was born with a pencil and sketchbook in his hands. As a child he would always be found drawing his favorite cartoon characters on anything and everything.

 

Later he moved on to drawing more realistic people and objects because he viewed it as a challenge. His brother-in-law, who was an illustrator for several casinos in Atlantic City and the Franklin Mint, took him under his wing and mentored him. During this time Christopher was introduced to graphic design and it was love at first sight!

 

Christopher went on to Rowan University where he studied illustration and graphic design and was among the best in his class. While studying there he was getting paid work from a Grammy Award winning producer as well as work from White Rose Foods and MET Markets in New York.

 

Christopher is currently the owner of COLD Graphics and Arts, LLC where he has done work for many companies across the United States as well as for celebrities and professional sports teams. His specialty is creating logos and illustrations.

Branding

Brand is the "name, term, design, symbol, or any other feature that identifies one seller's product distinct from those of other sellers.

"Brands are used in business, marketing, and advertising.”

Illustration

An illustration is a visualization or a depiction made by an artist, such as a drawing, sketch, painting, photograph, or other kind of image of things seen, remembered or imagined, using a graphical representation.

Graphic Design

Graphic design is the art of communication, stylizing, and problem-solving through the use of type, space and image. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term "graphic design" is used interchangeably with these due to overlapping skills involved. Graphic designers use various methods to create and combine words, symbols, and images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. A graphic designer may use a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce a final result. Graphic design often refers to both the process by which the communication is created and the products which are generated.
