I worked with Chris on the City Hicks, LLC urban sustainable farming project in 2011 – 2012. I met Chris through the City Hicks, which was an all volunteer, non-profit aimed at using vacant city lots as part of then-Mayor Cory Booker’s plans for the beautification of the city of Newark, NJ. The goal was to plant flowers and vegetables on rented city-owned empty lots and thereby add some much needed greenery and beautify vacant land in lower income neighborhoods. Chris took the initiative and provided amazing garden designs, renderings, logos and even a storyboard to enable the team to crystallize and present our plans for sustainable gardening/farming. He was passionate about sustainable farming and had already spent time studying this in the Midwest. Additionally Chris had clear vision and was able to translate our abstract thoughts into concrete images, which were tremendously helpful in guiding our efforts. As part of our City Hicks non-profit, Chris created 3D visualizations for what various plots would look like and designed t-shirts that would be a part of our community outreach efforts. He was also helpful in evaluating greenhouse-farming methods knowing what would be suitable for our climate. I highly recommend Chris Martin and his ability to design was the highlight of the City Hicks effort. Chis is definitely a team player.

I hired Chris for some freelance projects during my time at E! Entertainment and Style Network from 2008-2009 here in Los Angeles. As a freelance motion graphics designer, Chris designed and animated elements for promotional presentations that were later rolled into broadcast elements. He was also tasked with translating scripts to storyboards then creating animatics and editing imagery. Chris also modeled, animated, and composited 3D elements for the refresh of The Dish open. His proficiencies include After Effects, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Cinema 4D. From day one it was an absolute pleasure to work with Chris. His professionalism, dedication, and demeanor makes him someone I’d like to work with everyday! He is a colleague and a friend!
