My name is Chris Hogben, I’m based in South London and have been working as a full time Graphic Designer in central London for the last 7 years. I design during the day, and photograph by night. I spent most of my free time being a geek, a dad, or behind a lens.

About Design:

I studied Graphic Design at The Arts University College in Bournemouth, I’ve been in the industry for 7 years now and work full time in a creative studio in Covent Garden called PaperhatFTP. I’m responsible for a variety of projects, ranging from advertising campaigns, branding and identity, animations, large format and promotional print design.

About Photography:


I have a passion for capturing portraits of anyone who will stand still for me, as well as shooting fashion, editorial, repotage, photography. This site only showcases the more commercial parts of my photography, I have a fuller, varied portfolio of my photography work over at chrishogben.co.uk.

How to make digitaltoast

Take one battered Nikon DSLR and add to a large bowl. Crack a macro lens on the side of the bowel, spoon out the bokeh and apply generously. Next select a finely tuned playlist (you can buy these pre-shuffled) and mix in randomly, be sure to add a kaleidoscope of colour if it gets too sticky. Once light and fluffy, add a generous splash of mac geeky-ness and then sprinkle a pinch of ‘Boards of Canada’. Leave to settle, then when hungry, cut into doorstep slices and slide into your toaster. Set the dial to 27 and wait for the pop. You can now tuck into the wholemeal goodness* of your own digital toast.
