I MAKE ... AND OTHER THINGS
Inspired Visual Design
Equipped to Meet all Your Design Needs
I’m Chris Parrish, also known as Parris at DAZ3D.com. I am a graphic designer, web designer, and 3d model creator with more than 10 years professional design experience across a multitude of media. It’s been many years since I studied Visual Design at the University of Oregon, but really my education in these three disciplines has been continual. Business owners are always asking me “can you do …?”, and “no I can’t” is something I don’t want in my vocabulary. So I’m always researching new features and technologies, to give my clients the edge.
Whatever your design needs are, I’m here to help. If you need ideas – I’ve got them. But if you know what you want or just need a little help figuring that out, I’m at the ready. I’m interested in learning about you and your business, and when you hire me, your needs and wants are always at the forefront. So if you are looking for graphic design, web design, illustration, or 3d modeling you are welcome to get in touch.You can review some of my work in my Portfolio Gallery.

The Little Robot That Started It All
Aikobot Maria was the first product I made for DAZ 3D and my first venture into modeling a character in 3d. She was designed to be cute, sexy, and very hi-tech. I had hoped that Aikobot would appeal to a broad base of sci-fi enthusiasts. So naturally, I’m very proud that she has showed up in artwork all over the web. Many companies, organizations, and individuals have featured her in promotions for everything from phone apps to grocery store ads.
For me she started an obsession with modeling mechanical curves that I may never finish. Consequently, Aikobot Maria inspired follow-up products like Bot Armor, Aikobot 2, Bot Genesis, and Genesis 2 Female Bot Armor. So I expect there will be more robot creations like her in my future.
Each time I rework the idea of “Sexy Robot”, I’m working out new ways to make my products both desirable and versatile. That’s why I often design my robots so that you can use parts, like an arm or a leg, to create your own notion of a cyborg or cyber enhancement.
My sincere hope is that creative people everywhere will be inspired by my characters and use my products to make all kinds of things I never imagined. Encouraging others to be creative is one of the most important reasons why I do what I do. I truly believe the world is a better place with more dreamers in it.
