Chris Weiser

Chris Weiser earned his B.F.A. in Graphic Design at Iowa State University, and in 2011 returned to his hometown in the Quad Cities to become a Graphic Designer for Twin State. In addition to website design and development, Chris produces logos, print collateral, and even bike jerseys for our clients.

Chris is fond of a lot of things: hiking, photography, graphic novels, coffee shops, reading Kindle books on his iPad Mini, wasting time on consumer tech articles, and complaining about not being good at programming. He's a neophyte oil and acrylic painter, and splits his Saturdays between the downtown farmers' market and painting classes at Bucktown Center for the Arts. His designs are fueled mostly by multiple cups of loose-leaf tea and a steady stream of Pandora.

His current apartment is on the top of a hill, which he likes to pretend is Minas Tirith from The Lord of the Rings.
