Chip Martens — Design, etc.

Based in the heart of Canada, I have a love for bicycles and coffee with the desire to lead a simple, intentional life.

For the past 10 years I have specialized in uncluttered, easy-to-use designs. I believe in working with my clients instead of for them and in putting quality over quantity. Strong fascinations with architecture and industrial design have led to an adeptness for clean, grid-based layouts.

The most rewarding part of my work is discovering the potentials of every project and to see those possibilities come to fruition. Beyond my passion for design, I truly enjoy the relationships that have grown from working with great people and the opportunity to bring my best to further their success.
