Co-Founder, Interaction Director
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.
