Chris Manik Creative (CMC) is a Los Angeles-based design practice that takes the creative road less traveled to make clients stand out. We elevate the user experience by evoking emotion through awesome visual design and superior functionality. CMC works ethically and efficiently to find the best design solutions for professionals, entrepreneurs, and brands.
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 and UX design at CMC. Chris describes himself as curious, confident, and a life-long learner. As a former globe-trotting musician, who played in 38 countries as a DJ/Artist, Chris has achieved results and creative success. Now residing in sunny Los Angeles, he combines his education in UX/UI design and self-taught web design skills, to give clients meaningful and beautiful websites.
Outside of designing, Chris enjoys spending time at home, hiking, reading and cooking.
