Christopher M. Läspä:
Principal & Creative Director
999 Art Direction

SINCE 1978, Christopher has dedicated a major proportion of his Creative career to Advertising, Design, and Corporate Marketing & Communications overseeing and/or creating Print and Web solutions. He has spent 20+ years in the downtown Toronto Advertising Agency community holding a variety of positions that include Senior Art Director and Creative Director, creating and overseeing successful national advertising campaigns and collateral materials for prolific clients in a wide range of business categories. Christopher has extensive in-depth, hands-on experience with Consumer (B2C), Dealer, Channel, and Business-to-Business (B2B) advertising campaigns. A full list of clients served is below.

Since the commercial beginning of the Internet in 1995, Christopher has been involved with the B2B/B2C marketing aspect of web design, spearheading several successful ground breaking international Corporate web-based initiatives for such firms as WHERE Magazines International and Teknion Furniture Systems in Canada and the U.S.A.

Christopher opened 999 Art Direction originally in 1991 as a freelance 'rapid-response' resource to Toronto advertising agencies. In 2003, he re-opened 999 Art Direction on a full-time basis with the sole intent of helping established Small Office/Home Office (SoHo) business owners get the unique communication advantage and insight that is usually reserved for clients with large enough budgets to retain a large downtown advertising agency or design firm. Christopher believes it only fair that Small Business have this insight too -- at a level scaled to accommodate their needs.

Christopher is an ideal design resource for small businesses to draw upon, as he is far more than just another "web designer" in Toronto -- he has experienced, countless numbers of unique Print and Web Marketing / Advertising scenarios within the Consumer, Corporate and B2B/C realm.

And when Christopher isn't doing his 'design magic', he can be found engaged in late 17th and early 18th century French baroque woodwind music for the oboe, recorder, flute, bassoon, and musette, which has been his passion as a performer and historian for the last 35+ years.
