My name is Chris Santoro and I'm a graphic design student from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. I aspire to do graphic design in the music industry; though I'm more familiar with the metal and hardcore scene, I'm open to doing design for all different genres.

I'm looking to do print collateral for bands, including logos, CD artwork/layouts, and merchandise. I am skilled with Adobe Photoshop CS4, Illustrator CS4, and InDesign CS4; in addition to that, I am also skilled in drawing, typography, and other illustrative means.

My goal is to work with the bands one on one in order to bring their concepts from initial thought to printed page/package. Through an interview detailing the project brief to an extensive yet fruitful design process, I will keep on the same page with each client by sending mockups of their projects until the final product is met. I am very friendly to work with and I will meet all deadlines.

In concerns to show bookers, I am more than happy to do your shows' posters, online flyers, etc.. I am also up to do page layout work such as zines for your local scene.

I understand that bands usually have financial issues upon the release of their albums, especially with paying for the cost of recording, mixing, and mastering; my goal in the long run is to expand my portfolio. I have most of my current work on my Flickr , so if you're interested, definitely get at me at:

Thanks so much for your time in reading, and I hope to work with you soon!

I could probably do the mock ups for you, but in concerns to coding the finalized layout, I'm afraid I'm not that savvy in it. I'm sorry!!

Is there anything else I could do for you?

my band is just starting up and we are looking for a logo for flyers so it would just be letters no pictures or anything like that. is that possible?

Yeah of course! Hit me up on AIM and we'll discuss the project. If you don't have AIM, then we can work out some other means of communication.

Definitely good work, but promotion is against the rules on the boards here. I'm not gonna report you to the mods, but the thread may get closed. I'd recommend going to this thread to promote your work:

People usually promote bands there, but I'm sure this would be acceptable.
