VP, Design, Photography, and Multimedia at CNN
Had the wonderful pleasure to work with Chris on a big redesign of a major sports news site and she was instrumental to the project’s eventual success and launch. She worked to translate the design work into something the development team could very easily take, run with, and most importantly build! What’s more, her clear, comprehensive, and expert analysis and documentation helped push our design work to new heights, too. We were lucky she was on the team!

Asst. Vice President, Interactive Marketing / E-Business at Lancôme
Chris is a delight to work with not only because of her witty personality, but because of the passion that she has for her work. Chris combines her background in education with her in-depth knowledge of the digital arena to offer a different element of IA creativity to the projects she works on. As a former functional analyst, Chris is not afraid to dig into back-end system architecture in order to better model her front end user interaction designs. Her experience in website usability testing, tracking digital social networking trends, and functional analysis makes Chris a solid Information Architect and a valuable resource to have on a team.

CNN Headline News
Principal at Suite Seven Productions, L.L.C.
Chris was more than just a writer at CNN Headline News. She was (is)a journalist with a high degree of integrity and very skillful at writing stories in an introspective and meaningful way. News writing in mainstream media has become more formulaic but despite this trend, Chris always managed to combine relevance, timeliness and balance into her news stories while avoiding commonality.

Programmer at AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library
Chris generates complex or simple ideas with great rapidity, and can explain either sort equally well. Anxious to flatten barriers between the verbal and the visual, she deserves an employer unafraid to raise the bar.

T. Anthony Pollner Distinguished Professor
School of Journalism, University of Montana
Chris Boese is a talented and an extraordinary individual. She was a guest speaker in my fall 2005 graduate poetry workshop. She spoke eloquently and extensively about the intersection of poetry and media/web projects. Our students were captivated by her knowledge, charisma, and wit. Her presentation was a collection of resources our students were thrilled to encounter; consequently, since many of the students were profoundly influenced by Boese’s presentation, they were able to incorporate some of the ideas in their own final projects (end of the semester portfolios, some included multi-media components). It was truly a pleasure getting to know Boese during her time at University of Montana–I hope to work with her in the future.

Associate Professor, Department of Humanities at NJIT
Chris is a creative professor who eagerly forges into unknown territory, motivating her students to follow along and learn from the experience. She’s a motivational teacher and a great colleague. Her current work with blogs is a natural extension of her work with new media. I have known Chris since we were both graduate students at RPI. She was an innovator then and continues on that path.
