A little bit about Chris

After a year working for TV Malta as an animator, Chris joined the Learning Methods Unit of Liverpool John Moores University as a researcher. Working with academics, he explored ways of utilising interactive media to enhance learning experiences. Chris established Splinter in 1997 to build upon this research and ever since then Splinter has produced a wide portfolio of digital and printed work which educates and entertains via great stories, design and technology.

In addition to running the company, he has managed, or contributed to, many of Splinter’s most successful outputs. These have included diverse projects such as leading the rebranding of the Clwydian Range & Dee Valley AONB and the town of Rhyl, Game Plan, a comprehensive online outreach tool for Kings College London and two welsh language learning apps for the Welsh Assembly Government. He also led the development of two GPS based ‘discovery’ apps; the Horseshoe Falls Quest and the Professor Fluffy campus app for the University of Liverpool.

Chris has also worked on many projects for the BBC such as managing the delivery of 36 welsh Second Language animations for BBC Bitesize, numerous Bitesize illustration projects, and most recently, has scripted and managed 8 animations on the ancient Maya.

Chris is dedicated to ensuring that Splinter’s projects are thoroughly tested with representative’s of the target audience, ensuring ownership and the appropriateness of any suggested solution. Most recently, he has facilitated comprehensive testing sessions with pupils in London and Liverpool on behalf of Kings College London. Another project of note is Liverpool’s Local Offer App. Chris, and other members of staff, ran workshops with children and young people with disabilities across the city and ensured that they had significant input at all stages of the creative process.
