Christopher Santoro

Before coming to Linchpin, Chris was a career-long freelance designer and studio owner specializing in brand strategy & identity design. This focus throughout his career allowed him to view each project from a holistic perspective, while working with his clients to fully realize their true “authentic” brand.


Now, as the senior web designer for Linchpin, he’s able to bring his background into strategizing & crafting visually-immersive web experiences for each client. Constantly living by the notion that a designer’s life is one of “constant learning,” he also finds time to be a guest reviewer at his alma mater’s portfolio reviews and mentors young designers, while diving into every tutorial possible on YouTube. If not at his screen, you’ll most likely find him face-first in a bowl of ramen at Ganko Ittetsu, or drinking his 5th espresso of the day…or 6th…possibly 7th.
