Hey, I'm Chris Hurtt,
aka Heezy or Mr. 8BitHipHop.
I'm a graphic designer,
illustrator,and motion designer
based out of Oakland, CA.

Some Background:

I'm a graduate from SF State with a BS in Visual Communications. I work with artists & brands to create compelling visuals and thoughtful designs. I also run my own brand, 8BitHipHop (as seen below), in which the products have made a strong presence not only in the Bay Area, but across the globe. Throughout my freelancing, I've worked with many music artists, including Kanye West, BJ the Chicago Kid, and Cardi B. I have also designed for major brands like Atlantic Records, Harper's Bazaar, and Goldenvoice.

If you're interested in working on a project or would like to stay in contact, fill out the form below. Thanks!

Kinetic Type Project.
The purpose of this project was to show how
type can deliver a message without the use of any graphic elements. 
This can easily be used for lyrics to a song
or interesting background elements during a live show.
