The short version. I’ve been a creative since 2001, which means I’ve had time to develop multiple ways of addressing a communications problem, including creative strategy, various forms of writing and conceptual thinking, and extensive training in image-making (illustration and design). 

The company name refers to my first ever client feedback. Fifteen year old me had a short story accepted by a well-known magazine. The editor had only one comment. 

My name’s Christian Bunyan, by the way. Hello.

The slightly longer version. After university in England and the U.S., I took a post-grad at Britain's best advertising school. Titled “Copywriting & Art Direction,” the course also focused on creative strategy. Reason being: you need clear strategy to generate clear executions.  

I received a distinction, the highest grade possible, and the highest grade in three years. 

Then: ad agencies and client-side comms jobs. Projects ranged from creative for small businesses to global corporations, product development, teaching designers/directors, technical writing, directing commercials and short films (one of which appeared at BAFTA), and exhibitions (including the Venice Biennale). My responsibilities ranged from press release writing to chief editor to curator to Head of Copy to creative lead to strategy lead.

Concurrently, I spent eight years as a ghostwriter, covering design, advertising, photography, and the business of creativity. My work appeared in everything from Vogue to Time. I also continued to study the craft, with teachers including published novelists and professional editors.

I ended up working for myself, and studied illustration for five plus years, as well as digital marketing and various forms of design. My mentors numbered marketing professionals, design professors, and artists at Pixar, Disney, Sony, Ubisoft, and Industrial Light & Magic. On the illustration side, I’ve produced images for a camera equipment maker (whose clients include Will Smith), authors, and an Australian collective dedicated to positive scientific news. You can find my illustration portfolio here.

Other projects include everything from communications/strategy for designer furniture, writing/consulting for an Oculus-backed startup, writing a TV script for a production company and consulting for a VR theatre company.   
My published work includes articles, essays, books, and short stories. A book of mine sold out in hardback, and one of my stories was picked for a "best of" anthology. Weirdly enough, my most successful text was a disclaimer for a hotel website, which was covered on MSNBC, NBC and CNN.  

Resume. Me, in bullet points.
