SANTORO | Branding & Design
Branding & Design For Small Business and Start-Ups



SANTORO is the private design practice of Christopher Santoro. A Massart alumnus of four years, he's worked with a variety of different clients both in small business and the tech start-up scene in Boston, MA; as well as small-to-large agencies and higher education. Clients include: Northeastern University, Beantown Bootcamp, Saucony, Velcro, nuEX, Cambridge Eating Disorder Center, Netbrain Technologies, Promoboxx. 

When he's not designing, he's teaching design as an adjunct professor at Massart, furiously reading Justice League comics, cooking and eating immense amounts of food, and listening to Gordon Ramsay yell at him.

My philosophy towards design is simple: work alongside my clients in a collaborative partnership, to create highly memorable, impactful, and beautiful creative work that represents them and their goals. With that comes a little bit of an old and new school collision course, with influences from Paul Rand, George Lois, Stefan Sagmeister, Mike Monteiro, Von Glitchka, Aaron Draplin, and David Carson, with a good ol’ touch of Boston-bred charm. 

I’ve worked with small businesses for the past five years, aside from my work with bigger brands and agencies alike. I co-founded a digital agency in Salem, MA called known.creative, LLC in the year 2014, and continued the same work with more varied clientele. Additionally, I teach Graphic Design II as an adjunct professor for my alma mater, Massachusetts College of Art & Design. I’m devoted to the craft of good design, and I always look for ways to push towards it.
