Chris Mele

Managing Director, Stink Studios

Chris began his career in publishing at Condé Nast before making the inevitable migration to working in digital design and technical development during the advent of Web 2.0. A veteran of everything from small, independent design shops to global agency networks like CP+B Boulder, he returned to NYC in 2015 to lead Stink Studios NY and has since led the studio through the largest period of growth in company history. 

Stink Studios is a modern mid-sized creative agency that blends strategic planning, creative development and integrated production into marketing and product work for both commercial giants like Spotify and Google, and small non-profit organizations like the Equal Justice Initiative and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Drug Pricing Lab. Fundamental to the success of the studio is a constantly evolving approach to working with and nurturing talent within Stink's Strategy, Creative, Design, Technology, and Production disciplines, which is the primary area of focus and pride for Chris.
