In addition to our permanent staff, for each project we tap into our extensive and highly-vetted network of experts, from 3D animators to camera crew to typography specialists. For each project, we handpick the artist with the relevant skill sets, ensuring a high-caliber final product and a lean overhead. Our network is continually growing and we carefully curate the best talent available to ensure you receive the best product.

Adam Scher

A media artist and choreographer originally from Southern California, Adam Scher brings a strong aesthetic to the creative and art direction of all projects at CMYK. His broad experience and background act as a foundation to create innovative and unique design solutions.

Adam specializes in UIUX, motion graphics and experiential design. His ability to interpret and distill client messaging to its core is exhibited in the elegant, succinct and impactful animations he created for McKinsey and Company. His skill at innovating on traditional ideas is exemplified in his work for medical device multinational, Brainlab. To communicate Brainlab’s range of – often intimidating – cancer treatment products to consumers and their own internal sales force, Adam concepted a clever comic book which anthropomorphized the products, turning them into a cancer-fight super hero squad – and making these products more relatable, understandable and fun at the same time.

Before co-founding CMYK, Adam was an Interactive Art Director at Draft FCB, where he art directed and designed multiple, interactive physician campaigns and subcampaigns for Merck, GSK and Bristol Meyers Squibb.

Adam’s experiential design work fuses together digital installations with live performance. He has presented and produced installations for AUNTS, Galapagos Arts Space, Solar One, Dixon Place, 92nd St. Y, the danceNOW festival, Triskaleon Arts, the Irondale Center, Provincetown Dance Festival, Dumbo Arts Festival and Joyce Soho. Adam is an adjunct professor at New York University and Parsons the New School for Design. He received his MFA in Design and Technology from Parsons, The New School for Design and a BA from New York University’s Tisch School of the Art.

Chris Langer

Co-founder Chris Langer incorporates cutting-edge interactivity and multimedia in all of his work – whether developing Webby-award winning websites, creating innovative platforms for multiuser content networks, or mounting interactive installations at events like DUMBO Arts Festival.

He brings nearly two decades of experience in digital development, video production, editing and storytelling to his role at CMYK. His passion and expertise for finding the perfect story in large amounts of data is shown through various visualization projects. One such project used the Arizona State Coroner’s database of unidentified bodies in the Mexican- Arizona dessert to create a dynamic, geotagged map for the film The Undocumented. Located on the film’s website and social media channels, this map has enabled the family members of the deceased to identify their missing relatives – and it is still in use today.

Before starting CMYK, in his role as Interactive Director at Draft FCB, Chris developed and implemented digital solutions for multi-million dollar accounts, like Merck and GSK. For landscape designer and TV personality, Rebecca Cole, he focused her brand and expanded her reach and client base through a thorough digital brand strategy, which included a robust digital platform and the most extensive digital database of rooftop gardens, floral spaces and events in New York.

Chris has exhibited interactive installations and video work at Monkey Town in Brooklyn and the Walter Reade theater at Lincoln Center, as well as produced and mounted installations for NYU’s ITP and Nucleo d’Arte in Maputo, Mozambique. He holds masters from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at Tisch and is an adjunct in the Television and Radio department at CUNY-Brooklyn College.
