At the early age of 15, Christopher Horst was creating professional-level logos for bands like Estuary, in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. In high school, he started learning the digital application of design, and became quite intrigued with what else computers could offer in his creative pursuits.
At age 18, music became the next frontier for Horst. This venture began with playing bass & guitar and producing for comedic improv band, Technolicious, and programming original electronic music under the name Beta Project. In January of 2003, Horst moved to Boston to attend The School of the Museum of Fine Arts. His time in such a creatively rich environment allowed for a more panoramic understanding of art itself.
A thirst to compose serious metal emerged in Horst. He decided to apply his acquired production experience to a one-man studio metal project bearing his name. In February of '07, the debut album, "Delineating the Lugubrious," was quickly written. That same year, Horst had the personal opportunity to work on a logo for the Boston-based thrash metal band, Razormaze, and he quickly became immersed in design once more.
In ten years' time, Horst has accrued more than 1000 logo clients, venturing far beyond his gateway of heavy metal logos. There is much more on the horizon for Horst's artistic endeavors, so keep an eye out!
