About Eastside Design Co.

I’m Chris Crockett, AKA the Croctopus. I’m the designer, founder, and owner of Eastside Design Co. and Eastside Pin Co. I’ve got a deep need to solve problems and make things. And by things I mean anything from brewing beer, laying out flyers and books, illustrating cute pictures, and making motion graphics and cartoons. And if I’m being honest, I’m always fermenting a new pickled vegetable.


I consider myself to be a modern Renaissance man and cephalopod, which is pretty unusual for the land-locked state of Oklahoma. It’s home, but Oklahoma is generally late to the party when it comes to trends and access to materials for fancy new hobbies. I mean, really, where can you even buy a pickling crock in Oklahoma? (Seriously. I’m asking.)
