Director Christopher Riehl’s work is a fusion of forms – an unexpected blend of the delicate and painterly, the whimsical and tactile – all coming together cohesively to strike audiences in bold new ways. His willingness to experiment has resulted in some of the most interesting and fresh work on the scene today.

Since joining Mirada in 2009, Chris has helmed unique and artful projects for Amazon, Netflix, Disney, Target, Intel, Toyota, Michelob, and other top brands. His inspired animated storytelling for Target’s “Better Bullseye” campaign earned a VES nomination for Outstanding Animated Commercial, and his interdisciplinary approach gave Intel’s “Sponsors of Tomorrow” campaign an ideal blend of high technology and accessible humanity. His unique vision for the Marines earned the breakthrough interactive VR experience, “Battle Position,” an Addy award in 2022.

A Dallas native, Chris developed an early interest in filmmaking and started creating animated shorts before he was 10 years old. He founded the motion design collective Born, and brought his command of art, design, music and storytelling to top agencies, production companies, and game developers.

Driven by a deeply rooted compulsion to create, Chris seeks out simple solutions to complex graphic problems – working to make storytelling push the boundaries of media, and media to push the boundaries of storytelling.
