About

Wave emoji

Chris Manik Creative (CMC) is a Los Angeles-based design studio that takes the creative road less traveled to make our clients stand out. We elevate the user experience by evoking emotion through awesome visual design and functionality. CMC works ethically and efficiently to find the best solution for professionals, entrepreneurs, small businesses, both small and large.

Chris was born and raised in New York City where he quickly learned that in order to stand out you have to be yourself. Ultimately this is the same principle that guides both web design and branding at CMC. We use the client’s unique voice to create an authentic digital business card. As a former globe-trotting musician, who played in 40 countries as a DJ/Artist, Chris has achieved results and creative success. Now residing in sunny Los Angeles, he takes this lifelong creative fervor and launches Chris Manik Creative, a web design and Webflow development studio.

Today he combines his education in UX/UI design, self-taught web design skills, and a 10 year career as a creative professional to give clients meaningful and powerful websites that truly get results.
