About Me

WHO IS THE BLACK UNICORN?!

My name is Brenton Chapman and I am a Los Angeles based graphic designer and marketing specialist with over 10 years of experience and a serious caffeine addiction. I love to meet with new people and connect with their ideas and businesses, so that I can help them get their message out to the world. I have worked with all kinds of clients from indie hair stylists to the Department of Homeland Security and everything in between. I design because it’s what I love to do, and nothing makes me happier than collaborating with my clients to create something special and unique for them.

MY DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

To communicate your message to the world it is vital to be simple, clear and bold. I am very focused on typography in design because it is not only an addition to the design piece, but sets the tone and emotion to convey the message. My design philosophy and personal aesthetic is to capture attention through dynamic, engaging visual communication that will always bring an emotional response to the viewer – whether it’s a smile to their face or provoke thought.

Please keep in mind that the work I do is not indicative of any personal belief or political statements.
