Chad Kouri hails from a small town north of Detroit and currently lives and works in Chicago where he maintains a studio art and design practice and actively participates in the thriving art community while also working as a co-founder and member of The Post Family.

His projects range in diversity from one of a kind and editioned artwork to self-publishing, interactive displays, large-scale installations, design direction and consulting, book design and most recently, an exploration of painting.
The Post Family is an independent, Chicago-based collaborative founded in 2007 by seven individuals with a shared passion for craft, experimentation, collaboration and—above all else—community.
Hailing from a diverse variety of backgrounds—practicing as designers, illustrators, technologists, writers, teachers, entrepreneurs and artists—we’re united by the belief that great products come from collaborative minds.
We build environments that bring people together. Community is potential. Community is progress. Communities, not individuals, change the world.
