Hello! My name is Chris Manfre. 

I am a  designer, animator, and teacher obsessed with the 1980s. I love old-school hip hop, skateboarding, education, historic buildings, microbiology, geology & history.

Main focus

Currently, I am working a lot in 3D using Cinema 4D & Octane.
I love creating style frames and I am really into animation curves
and story-driven 3D animations.
In addition to creating, I also love teaching.


My foundation is in traditional design with an appreciation of type and color using programs like Photoshop & Illustrator.


I love learning new design tools. I am currently learning how to use
Marvelous Designer, Substance Painter, and working in virtual/augmented reality.

Animation Reel!

I love exploring new ideas, techniques, and software.
Check out my Instagram account for further experiments in design, illustration, & animation.

I did a TEDx talk in Salt Lake City at the University of Utah.
The talk is about the importance of using design to help people learn science through new technologies
like augmented reality and virtual reality.

Let’s work together!

I am always interested in working on new projects. Have an idea? Let’s talk!
