Chris Edwards

Senior Art Director

After graduating from Staffordshire University and with keen interest in ethical design, I started freelancing in Manchester and London, building up a portfolio of work with clients such as NHS, Manchester City Council, and the charity sector.
In 2011 I  joined WRG Doha as a freelance designer to work on the initial pitch and final delivery team for the 20th World Petroleum Congress. With a fondness for the region I have continued to worked within the Middle East ever since on award-winning events such as 40th UAE National Day, COP18 UN Climate Summit and Qasr al Hosn Festival.

In 2014 I joined WRG Live full time as a Senior Art Director. Now predominantly based in Manchester, I creatively lead projects for Live Events, Exhibitions and Branding.
