Hi! I am Christopher Hyzy – a multi-media designer with a love of music, typography, and the theatre arts.

Born and raised in Western New York, and a graduate of the Digital Media Arts program at Canisius College, I have designed for various theatres in and around the Buffalo area, independent record labels, professional teams such as the Buffalo Bills, and numerous other personal clients.

In addition to graphic design, I am an avid photographer. In 2015 I purchased a DJI Phantom and began taking aerial photos of the City of Buffalo and the surrounding area. This has provided me with a unique experience to take and share photos of Buffalo as it has never been seen before.

In 2016, I published my first book. B Is For Buffalo began as a photography project in which I took aerial photos of various locations in Buffalo that corresponded with a different letter of the alphabet. The project blossomed into a beautiful hardcover book full of rich images of Buffalo as it has never been seen before. Copies of my book can be purchased here!

Testimonials


What some of my favorite clients have said about working with me.

We struck gold when coming across Christopher Hyzy. A rising star in the design world, his creativity and flexibility played an instrumental role in the branding of our major event. Lightning fast and imaginative, Christopher captures the essence of a project and translates that into superior creative for the right audience. His talent is scary good and innate, which I love.

I would highly recommend Christopher in any situation – so long as he prioritizes us first!

John Schaller  |  Director of Development, Shea’s Performing Arts Center


As a small, community-focused organization, we needed a flexible designer who could meet both our creative and technical needs. Christopher has been that designer. He has understood our needs, been an organized guide and critic and produced great work. We look forward to working with him again in the future.

Christopher Hyzy provided a superb brand identity for the BWBeatles and in this regard played a significant role in launching the Beatles Festival at Baldwin Wallace University.  His work is smart, seamless and full of the energy required to grow an audience and take an artistic product to the next level.

I was comfortable with assigning Christopher to any project, big or small, knowing that the creative, quality, and timeline were all in good hands. His thirst for growth in the creative field was ever present.

Anyone considering Christopher as an addition to their team will quickly find that not only do his designs speak for itself, but his dedication and thirst for growth is great to work with day in and day out, as it makes you yourself a better designer.

Bryan Matthews | Creative Services Director, Buffalo Bills


Christopher is a top-notch designer who consistently delivers great work and always meets the deadline. Our theatre company recently wanted to revamp it’s brand recognition strategy, and Christopher did an outstanding job. I often get compliments on the imaginative quality of our marketing pieces now.

I have used Christopher’s services repeatedly for brochure, poster, playbill, and mailing piece designs, and I have always enjoyed working with him. He knows what we need to the point where he’s truly an extension of our organization, and I always know we’re getting a great person on the team when he’s on a project.
