Constructive Stumblings Design is the Los Angeles-based creative studio of artist/designer Dickie Chapin (that's me). With over 15 years of experience, I take great pride in combining style with function to give my clients' products an eye-catching and informative identity. In addition to my own personal design skillset, Constructive Stumblings employs a team of ridiculously talented coding and web development specialists (serious nerds). This allows CSD to handle any project a client throws at us, from concept to completion.
I've been designing things since age 5 when I covered my grandma's walls one summer with drawings, illustrated lettering and poster art. I obtained my Bachelor of Fine Arts from Berea College, graduating 3rd in my class. After college I moved to Chicago and joined/formed several rock bands (some signed, some not) as drummer or singer. I often found myself needing posters, flyers or CD artwork so I learned the necessary software and soon began to make a little extra cash doing freelance design on the side. After years of honing my skills I took the whole show to the west coast and officially incorporated Constructive Stumblings, Inc. to encompass the increasingly steady volume of design work. Five years later CSD has a nice little stable of regular clients all over the world. I love what I do and am passionate about continually evolving as a visual artist.
Here are just a few of the companies I've had the pleasure of working with:
