DISRUPT the Fowler: Eric Hu
Eric Hu is a DISRUPTOR in the fields of branding, graphic design, and typography. Inspired by the diverse aesthetic influences offered by the City of Los Angeles, he has built an international reputation for pairing maximalist image-making with typographic nuance.
After serving as the Global Design Director at Nike and Director of Design at SSENSE, Hu launched his creative consultancy and design practice, Eric Hu studio. As the studio’s art director, he pairs his creative vision and experience with clients in the fashion, music, architecture, and technology spaces. Join the Fowler and DISRUPT for a glimpse at Hu’s work and a conversation about how he pushes the bounds of experimental graphic design and disrupts corporate identities in the creation of new visual languages.
