About

My name is Cris DaBica. I live in a small town in northern New England with my remarkable wife Alison, our son Francesco, and our dog, Milo. I was born and raised in Connecticut, spent time in Idaho, New Hampshire, and was even in Oregon for a short while. I have asthma and am bowlegged.

From early 2003 I worked in the Burlington studio of Jager Di Paola Kemp Design, leaving there as Creative Director in late 2012 to become CD of Dealer.com. Since that time, I have been CD of a variety of brands within the Cox Automotive universe, as well as directing product positioning for the company.

In 2019, together with Steve Francisco, I co-founded Francisco, DaBica, and Friends.

I have presented and lectured at institutions like the University of Vermont and the Rochester Institute of Technology (on behalf of academic departments as well as organizations such as the AIGA,) and work I either did or directed has one an award here and there.

My writing career began in 1991; I have had articles published on subjects ranging from American road racing history to ice boating in New Hampshire, the state of creativity in the cycling industry, all the way to corporate color theory. I am currently working on a series of books on niche collecting.
