Welcome to designbyCAF, my portfolio and blog site. My name is Christopher A. French. I am a designer with experience within the product, furniture and interior design sectors. However, I see myself as more than a designer. I like to think of myself as a Creative Explorer.

My interests cover all areas of the creative industries: including design but widening to architecture, art, film and video, and technology among other things. I have a huge appetite and curiosity for learning and continue to love trying and experimenting with new ideas and things. I love to explore ideas through writing (which you can see through my blog), as well as through conceptual and physical projects. I have ambitions to work within these areas and hopefully to combine them to produce work that has an impact on people’s lives whether that is on an intimate level between person and product, or a public level with projects that afford social change.

By designing objects that encourage mindful interaction, I aim to provide users with opportunities to feel appreciation and gratitude towards their possessions, environment and daily lives.

I am currently on the lookout for freelance work and collaboration opportunities, as well as permanent positions.
