Chris Spencer is an illustrator and designer living and working in Herefordshire. Chris studied at Hereford College of Arts and left with a Bachelor of Arts in Illustration.

His work has been commended by a number of clients.

‘I commissioned Chris to illustrate a feature on nurse's pay and hardship for Nursing Standard magazine. I provided a draft of the article and an outline brief suggesting an approach after which Chris promptly produced sketches of different concepts for us to choose from. Chris showed a high level of creativity which was greatly appreciated by our team and we liked the illustration so much we used it on the cover. Chris took feedback constructively and was able to adapt to our requests for changes to shapes and colours when supplying the final artwork and adapting a version for the cover. He executed his ideas to a highly professional standard regarding specifications and deadlines. I would have no hesitation in working with Chris again.’ - Sujata Aurora, Art Director.

‘I commissioned Chris to create an illustration for Bulletin magazine, the official magazine for the Royal College of speech and language therapists. He provided us with several ideas to choose from in a timely manner, resulting in an illustration that was perfect for the subject matter. He responded professionally to feedback and took on board comments and edits with speed and accuracy. It was an absolute pleasure working with him.’ - Yvey Bailey, Art Director.
