The journal of Chris Bowler, a collection of thoughts on faith, business, design, and the creative process.

About the author

Welcome! My name is Chris Bowler. First and foremost, I'm a Christian (hence the title), father, and a husband. I'm so, so blessed to be married to an inspiring woman and we have six amazing kids.

I'm also a creative with a love for writing, design, and front end web development. I love to serve a team! A while back I started the boutique ad service Fusion Ads. Now I work with the amazing team at InVision and previously had the privilege of working with the folks at Campaign Monitor.

If you read this site, you'll get a sense of the things that are important to me. Studying God's word, quiet mornings, hot (black!) coffee, cold craft beer, eating local, gardening, the Patriots, writing, considerate curation, and craftsmanship to name a few.

Above all, I love design and wish I were better at it. One day at a time.
