Eric Elms: Design Dreams
Exactly 17 years ago, I moved to San Diego for a short stint, and that very same year, Eric Elms, born and raised there, up and left for New York, never to return. “There wasn’t room for both of us,” Eric shrugged, when I briefed him on this fact. He was right; we both wanted the rolled tacos all to ourselves. Making the ambitious leap back East at such a young age was a prime factor in Eric’s creative success, and another was working for a roster of artists and businesses who have become among the most recognizable names in their respective industries. Over time, based on a purposeful work ethic of producing continuous, quality results, Eric became a designer sought after by countless popular and underground brands. While his design career was thriving, Eric began to experiment with materials outside of the mouse and monitor, with an eye towards the white walls of a gallery.
