Eric Ellis is a multidisciplinary designer based in Charleston South Carolina and a senior designer at Fuzzco.
I enjoy long walks on the beach and inspirational TED talks. I used to live in Chicago but that was then, this is now. When not graphic designing I may be found staring blankly into space, vacuuming a floor, reading a book, skateboarding or antiquing with Frances

I graduated with a BFA from Columbia College Chicago in 2010 and started my career at Ogilvy & Mather
, as part of their internal brand team, 485
, led by Gabe Usadel. I was part of several large campaigns, most noteably the relaunch of the UPS brand. After three years to the day at O&M I decamped to a small scrappy digital agency called Nelson Cash
, where I spent two years as a designer, working primarily with Google, but also on a lot of other digital work. In August 2015, after 11 years in Chicago and two years at NC
, I accepted a position as senior designer at Fuzzco
and so Frances and I packed our life into the back of a rented truck and drove south to live the salt life.
