Jeff Langhammer Wins Forty Under Forty

Ilfusion CEO Selected as a Forty Under Forty Recipient

Distinguished Annual Award Given by Fort Worth Business Press

Jeff Langhammer has been selected as one of the 40 recipients to receive the prestigious honor of “Forty Under Forty” given by the Fort Worth Business Press annually. At only 32 years of age, Langhammer is the CEO and Co-Founder of Ilfusion Creative, Fort Worth’s fastest-growing creative agency. Ilfusion has more than doubled the size of its staff in the last six months in response to overwhelming interest in its services, necessitating a move to an open-concept office and studio space in West 7th Fort Worth this past January.

“I’m honored to receive this award from a publication as well-regarded as the Fort Worth Business Press,” Langhammer says in response to the accolades. “Our team is enthusiastic and works very hard, so it’s great to see that hard work recognized.”

In spite of the growth spurt, Langhammer has kept the firm’s fun and friendly vibe fully intact. “We definitely want to be the kind of place where people want to come to work and are excited to bring their best every day,” says the CEO and Co-founder. Along with CIO and long-time friend Ryan Li, Langhammer created Ilfusion out of a small, existing agency, increasing its offerings to include high-definition video production, photography, social media, and public relations along with the company’s existing web and print design capabilities. The company’s growth isn’t limited to staff size or offerings, however. Langhammer and his team constantly research the latest and greatest marketing techniques to incorporate into the traditional and new media tactics in which the firm is already well-versed.

Langhammer’s passion for working with the Hope Center for Autism led him to produce a fashion show event at Fort Worth’s Brownstone Kitchen+Bar every quarter to raise money for the cause, with the next event being held on Thursday, May 3, 2012. He even volunteers his DJ services! Langhammer has personally worked with the Sportsmen’s Club of Fort Worth for the last 5 years on their annual game dinner volunteering his time to create graphic design pieces for their marketing materials. He has worked with the Dallas / Fort Worth Hospital Council Foundation for the past two years and has donated a retainer to assist with the Foundation’s website maintenance and optimization. While at May Advertising, he designed team T-shirts and raised money for the Alzheimer’s walk. He also raised money participating in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Texas’ Bowl for Kids Sake. Langhammer worked with the Fort Worth Habitat for Humanity by volunteering to create and deliver new signage for the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. He also volunteered time to install all new window signage at the store.

Born to a family with a long history working in marketing and advertising, Langhammer says that he always knew he would work in a creative environment. His grandfather was a classic “Mad Man” of the 1950s, and his uncle is a commercial photographer. Most weekends Langhammer can be found racing his car or DJing for his friends and co-workers at the Ilfusion Creative office. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington in 2003.
