Christian Marc Schmidt is a multi-disciplinary designer and media artist. His experience spans a diverse range of design disciplines, including print, environmental and interaction design, as well as media installation.

Christian studied economics in Frankfurt, Germany, before moving to New York, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Parsons School of Design, and a Master of Fine Arts from the Yale University School of Art. His work has received recognition in the US and internationally. Christian currently lives in Brooklyn.
