About Us

Hello! The about us is more of an about me. I'm Chris Gagnon, a freelance designer & endurance athlete born out of a small coastal community in beautiful southern Maine. I'm here to give you and your business a unique design experience.

With a blended background in art & fitness, I focused and improved my craft while attending the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Fast forward 15 years of experience working in Boston, my wife and I spontaneously relocated to the beautiful Northeast Kingdom of Vermont to be surrounded by the wild and closer to what we like to call home. Living here allows me to focus on small-batch design jobs that bring your vision to reality by producing something that excites you.

What is Our Process?

Let's Work Together


Talk with the customer, understand the problem you are trying to solve, and gather information.


Gather great ideas to establish features, functions, and any other elements that will allow you to solve the problem.


Produce a number of scaled down versions of the product or specific features found within the product.

Test & Deliver

Rigorously test the complete product using the best solutions identified during the prototyping phase. Final hand off to customer.


We are a design studio located within the magical Northeast Kingdom of Vermont,
turning ideas into beautiful things. You dream it; we build it.
Web Sites

Responsive (Mobile friendly), CSS/HTML, Wordpress, SEO, SSL certificates.

Websites do not have to be complicated, but they have to be effective, impactful, and speak to your audience. We have you covered whether you are looking to revamp your existing site, or start from scratch. Customers spend little time reading with their busy lifestyles, therefore your site needs to be both responsive and straight to the point.

Wood Working

Beer bars, bed frames, tv stands, dining tables, mirror/sign frames.

Working with wood is a passion of mine and am thrilled to have the opportunity to escape from the digital world by designing tactile objects that excite the lives of others. While we cannot build fine furniture, we can help design & build stunning pieces that are suited for more rustic locations.

I needed a website immediately and Chris put something together within an impossible deadline that I cannot be happier with.

We needed a beer bar for our wedding and Center Pond Design put together an extraordinary system built out of reclaimed barn wood that our guests thouroughly enjoyed all night long!
