My name is Erick Ikeda, born and made in Los Angeles.
I was a kid that was always infatuated with hoops, sneakers,
graffiti and cooking.The game of basketball taught me lessons and skills that I still hold firmly to this day; communication, teamwork and grit. As a little spud as a 9 yr old, watching the “dream team”
in the ‘92 olympics, planted the seed of wanting to become a footwear designer.
The thought of helping an athlete through design is where my passions lives and burns. It’s where industrial, graphic, apparel and fashion design all collide.
and that's exactly where I want to be.
Currently living in Beaverton, Oregon and designing for Nike.
