Christopher T. Hayes

Director, Environmental Graphics


Creating environments that inspire through the communication of our client’s mission and challenges drive me in shaping the ‘big idea.’ Visually expressing ideas by thought-provoking and imaginative messaging is my definition of creativity. And creativity is my way of making life less ordinary.

Chris leads CannonDesign’s environmental graphics practice, a key component of the firm’s comprehensive services enhancing the user experience . He transforms information into engaging environments that define architectural spaces – strengthening brand, telling stories, and expressing client values. Chris’ exhibitions and visual displays showcase campus legacies that advance recruiting and instill institutional pride across generations.
