Erik Karasyk

Erik Karasyk has pushed the threshold of design and digital experiences for nearly two decades. Throughout his career, he’s balanced creativity and technology with the power of 3D visualization, animation and programmatic rendering techniques. Initially, he rode the digital wave of the late 90’s with key roles at design and production companies like and CHRLX. Soon thereafter, he became a sought after technical director working on award-winning design and digital projects for global brands like Kraft, Acura, Sprint, McDonald’s and Miller. Later, he went in house with Nike’s much celebrated internal brand design group which included work on the (then) top-secret Nike+ concept.

Erik spearheads projects that focus on blending technology, rich visual content, and human-experience. He makes the complicated appear simple, so our clients can capitalize on the power of creative vision.
