Chicago's Best Female & Minority Web Designer - Chris Mickens
Would I rather be feared or loved? Um, easy, both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me. Michael Scott // The Office

Co-founder/Creative Director

As Creative Director, our magical unicorn Chris oversees the design and user experience of all EDUCO projects. She has been developing websites for the past 15 years, and if you ask her, she's been pretty good at it for about 6. Chris approaches development and troubleshooting with the tenacity of a bulldog, but manages to interface with the technically disinclined without the bark and bite — we're working on the slobber.

No stranger to travel, Chris was raised in Germany and bounced around the states from Texas to Louisiana to Hawaii to Las Vegas before settling (for now) in Oak Park, Illinois. With both home and office within walking distance from a sweet library, a movie theatre, and a Trader Joe's, it's likely that she'll be here for a while yet, but you never know with this one.

When she's not busy cranking out websites in a caffeine-fueled haze, Chris volunteers with the big-hearted, talented, and generous folks at Housing Forward  (formerly known as West Suburban PADS) to combat homelessness in the Western Chicago suburbs.

Someday she's going to start and finish that webcomic. We'll keep you posted.
