Erik Yang

I am a senior designer that works across a broad range of mediums – from experiential and interactive design, to traditional print, identity systems and broadcast design.

I have helped to develop interactive installations and digital experiences for Nike, Under Armour, IBM and Google. I have also worked on rebranding projects for SYFY, ABC, American Express, and The New York Public Library. Since joining Wolff Olins I have worked on several projects for Google, Grubhub and 3M.

In my previous life, I pursued degrees in Sociology and Political Science while working as an enumerator for the US Census Bureau and a congressional election office. During my free time I enjoy helping renovate Brooklyn brownstones through Habitat for Humanity and exercising my green thumb at Central Park.

Q & A

What word or phrase do you most overuse at work?
No worries.

What is your secret superpower?
I can write reeeeaaally really small. Sometimes I think my writing might be difficult to read, but I like to tell myself that I am doing my part to use less paper.

Tell us something about Wolff Olins that no one knows?
The cabinets and drawers in the kitchen all look the same. It can be confusing, but sometimes a happy surprise awaits when you open the candy drawer while looking for utensils.
