Hi, I’m Chris Dowson.

I’m a freelance senior creative designer specialising in branding & eCommerce.

I started my career in printing and publishing - expanding into digital design and development and in 2005 I set up my own studio: My First Raygun. I now work on branding and digital design projects for businesses, individuals and agencies across the world.

  • Web design & development.

    I am an experienced web designer and developer. Whether it's a brochure site, a control panel or a shopping cart, I ensure that it looks great, works well and helps the user achieve your goals.

I have worked on projects for:

Christopher is great to work with. He comes up with solutions quickly, presents us with a variety of options depending on our needs. He also explains things in a very clear way which I feel is important when you do not have the technical knowledge.
