Elliott Davis


From grinding away metal in the garage as a child, or lashing together pioneering poles as a Boy Scout, I have always had a passion for building and creating. When I discovered design, the things I created took on a deeper meaning and began solving real-world problems. As I learned about manufacturing and business, it allowed my thoughts and visions to carry further than I could have ever achieved as an individual craftsman.

Before coming to ArtCenter I worked as a graphic designer developing products in the music industry. There I learned the importance of managing projects, solving users’ needs and business strategy.

For me, strategy is where the process starts, but not where it ends. I believe design must consider the function, purpose, and how a product aligns with the corporate vision and strategy. Building long-term growth requires solving problems from the start. For me, that’s just smart design.
