Parris joins from Translation, where he was Head of Design and Group Creative Director. He worked on a variety of assignments there for companies including Google Play Music, DSW, Brooklyn Nets and Denver Nuggets.
Parris is a Deutsch “boomeranger,” having worked in Deutsch’s LA office several years earlier.
Prior to Translation and while at Deutsch LA, Parris helped launch TacoBell’s online food ordering platform. He also led the overhaul of model pages on Volkswagen’s VW.com, and worked on Sprint and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.
Outside of design work, Parris’s surrealist collages and typographic illustrations have been published by Complex, Huffington Post and Vice, as well as in Cut & Paste. His work has also been on exhibit at RE:FORM SCHOOL alongside Marc Ecko, Shepard Fairey and Michel Gondry, among others. Parris runs his own creative studio with his wife, Julia Parris, called “Analog is Heavy.”
