Fremont Tribune:

Chris Bristol has always been drawn to the arts, and now he’s turning that into a career path that blends his talents, the memory of his late parents and a desire to promote Fremont.

Bristol left his role as presentation editor at the Fremont Tribune last spring and launched Envision: Creative Solutions.

The simple description of the business, he said, is that he creates signs, banners, graphic designs and does photography, generally geared toward advertising, for his clients. But the approach is more in-depth than that, he said.

“It was suggested to me by a couple of people that there was a void in this particular area, in terms of graphic arts, advertising, as well as the signage side, that there was a place for me or for a business to go in and to be able to offer multiple things, not just simply copies or signs or design, but to be able to bundle a lot of that stuff together and offer it as a package,” he said.
