|Brian C Knapp chief creative officer
Brian C Knapp was born in Grand Rapids, MI and grew up with a head full of space ships and race cars. As a child Brian spent most of his time drawing pictures of the ideas banging around his head. Things are really not so different for him as an adult.
Brian attended Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI, then Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA, and then finally graduated from Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, MI with a BFA in 1998.
After college Brian worked as a product designer at both Haworth and Steelcase. He found corporate life very educational, but too confining creatively. In 2000 he founded Emmersive Media LLC with his father Jim.
Brian has previously held both adjunct and full-time assistant professor positions at Kendall College of Art and Design. From 1999 until 2003 he taught several classes in the Industrial Design department including both design drawing and computer modeling and visualization courses.
Brian lives in the country in the outskirts of the Grand Rapids metro area with his wife Alyssa and son Jason.
