about

Hey there! I'm Philip Czapla(chop-la), I'm a visual designer over at Fjord. After a traditional swiss design education, I began a natural progression west to San Francisco. During my design career, I've worked on brands including Apple, Google, Kaiser Permanente, Bacardi, & IBM. On my weekends you'll find me chasing powder in Tahoe, or biking in Marin.
