Christopher Billick

[   Director of Digital Media,  Michigan Creative   ]

Christopher is a magna cum laude graduate of U-M’s School of Art & Design, earning a BFA in Graphic Design in 1999. He then joined Skidmore Studio in Detroit, serving for 10 years as Director of Interactive Media. After making the transition to higher ed, he was Director of Web Services at Washtenaw Community College, where his team won an award for best college homepage design (2009, eduStyle Higher-Ed Web Awards).

At Michigan Creative, Christopher collaborates with marketing and communications staff across campus to develop web and mobile solutions that enhance the global brand reputation of U-M. He is also responsible for leadership, oversight, and guidance for U-M’s gateway and other key centrally managed sites.

A lover of photography and the outdoors, when asked to describe what he does Christopher will often reply, “I wrangle nerds.”

As a testament to how far digital media has come, Christopher hiked to an overlook (42.405538, -83.920147) with a backpack full of photo gear, placed his camera on a tripod, focused and took the image via a remote control app, edited the image in Lightroom mobile on his iPhone, and then uploaded the finished image to this page. All while still out in the woods.
