Currently working with the lovely folks at Peopledesign


I'm Chas, a designer living in Portland, Maine with a background in illustration, consumer packaging, and brand strategy. I enjoy creating and revitalizing brand systems with a human centered approach. Over the past few years I've been fortunate enough to work with a variety of clients, big and small, on a number of challenging and rewarding collaborations.

I'm always open for new connections, projects, and beer(s). Feel free to get in touch at cfappleby@gmail.com.
