Brian began his professional career as a product designer with Haworth’s famed Ideation Group followed by a stint in Steelcase's Treehouse Studio. These positions gave Brian an opportunity to develop his skills within a large corporation and become familiar with how they function. It was his experience at a small product design, consulting firm in between those jobs, however, that seemed to fit him best. The relaxed atmosphere, streamline work process and variety of projects stood out as attractive elements. These previous experiences and a desire for wider boundaries and more creatively challenging work lead Brian to form Emmersive with his father Jim. Brian C Knapp and Jim Knapp founded Emmersive Media LLC in the summer of 2000. Drawing on his education and professional experience in product design, and his natural talent and love of visual story telling, Brian left his safe corporate job behind and struck out to find greater challenges and expanded creative freedom. Jim brings more than thirty years of experience in finance and business.

In the past ten years Emmersive has worked with major corporations, (Haworth, Stryker, Bissell, Whirlpool, Knape and Vogt) as well as entertainment clients, (Pop Evil, Universal Studios/DreamWorks, Techlightenment) and consulting firms (DDM, Square One Design, Twisthink). In more recent times Emmersive Media has begun to focus more on 2D and 3D animation and storytelling, while still providing interactive and illustration services. As a result Emmersive’s work has expanded to include product marketing, consumer goods marketing/advertising and entertainment.

The future of Emmersive promises to be as innovative and compelling as the previous years as we continue to grow our client base, skill set and staff.
