Meet Chris 

Hi, my name is Chris Harris, the founder of Red Kite Design - a professional logo design service and design blog.

Although I work on a wide range of graphic design projects, I specialise in logo design and branding, offering my services to business owners and entrepreneurs around the globe.

I've always been passionate about identity design and how, when done well, a new identity system can truly transform a business.  

Edinburgh born and bred, I moved to Australia 3 years ago, setting up base in Brisbane with my wife and baby boy. With over 8 years industry experience working both at design agencies in the UK and Australia, and solo as a freelancer, I have a wealth of graphic design and marketing experience under my belt. I am able to offer a wide range of graphic design services, as well as guidance, to help your brand reach its true potential. 

When I'm not at my desk I try to get out of the office and into the great outdoors. Soccer, tennis, golf, bushwalking, skiing, surfing; I'm a sucker for any sport. I've also been lucky enough to travel around the world 3 times, visiting over 40 countries along the way. Every culture and experience has helped inspire me and my creative process.  

If you are interested in a logo design service, or have any other graphic design requirements, please get in touch to see how we can work together.

Fun Fact: These wiley winged wise guys are slight for a bird of prey, but won't think twice before taking on an Eagle for their dinner. Now who says size matters?!

What is a Red Kite anyway? 

You may be wondering why there are birds on a logo design website? Don't worry! You haven't accidentally stumbled across an ornithology club. That's the study of birds. And yes, we had to Google that.

The Red Kite is a bird of prey found in the milder regions of Europe and North Africa. You're probably familiar with his brother the Eagle. One of those milder regions of Europe is Scotland, where Chris was born and raised before moving to Australia.

The Red Kite had a bumpy ride in Scotland, becoming extinct in the nineteenth century. It was later reintroduced, doubling in numbers every 4 years since. Today, the Red Kite is going strong and showing no signs of slinking its way back into the history books. A true fighter!

So what better animal to represent a branding agency? Like the Red Kite, any business with the right strategy, and a little fighting spirit, has the capacity to succeed! We apply that mindset and ambition for success in each and every project we take on. If you'd like us to help you to become the next Red Kite success story, get in touch today to chat about your project.

Why is a logo so important?

Whether you’re a fledgling start-up or a long-standing corporate, investing time and money in a logo may seem pretty low on the list of priorities. As a new business owner you may be thinking “I have so many factors to consider, do I even need a logo at all?”, or an existing business owner “I […]

What Makes a Great Logo

What makes some logos better than others? At first glance this can sometimes be confusing, and this is because there are often natural misconceptions about exactly what a logo should be. Common assumptions are: a logo should communicate exactly what a business does; it should, above all else, be pretty - after all it is […]

    I can’t recommend working with Chris enough. Prepare to be challenged, inspired and
    ultimately very satisfied with any project you choose to task him with. Unruly Apparel simply isn’t what it is without Chris and for that I can’t thank him enough!

    Chris took the time to carefully listen to our needs and provided a multi stage solution that enabled us to hone in on the ideal logo. By the end we were extremely pleased with the brand he had created for us and Chris' patience throughout the process.

    I can't thank Chris enough for putting so much thought and effort into the branding of my business, not to mention his efficient and friendly nature making this a very pleasurable and fun experience.

    Thanks to Chris we ended up with a cracking logo that we’re proud to call our own. If we’d gone with a ‘yes-man’ or more impersonal service I dread to think what we might have ended up with. With the skills and guidance of Chris I’ve got four blokes here who are all absolutely made up with the end result.
