    • Relationships

Erica is a fashion and apparel designer who takes us through her career from coast to coast and back to Boulder, Colorado where she is from and is now heading up design at emerging outdoor brand, Artilect Studio. Joining forces under Trent Bush, both bring years of experience innovating in the outdoor space.Part 1 (Episode 2): We cover Erica's career track and how she went from the mountains of Colorado selling burritos and messing around on a sewing machine to New York, where she attended FIT and helped surf brand, Pilgrim start their first design program. Later she answers the West Coast call to California to design outerwear for The North Face, before landing back in Colorado where she's directing all her design and sourcing knowledge to create a wider platform for people to connect with the outdoors.Part 2 (Episode 3): We get into a bit of a deep dive around the state of sustainability and thinking around supply chain logistics through a designers lens. Less in the weeds on technical details (although we point to specific examples), and more a philosophical fire side chat around bottle necks to progress, different ways to view progress, and questioning which comes first—policy or culture?Website: https://www.ericatesscahn.com/Artilect: https://www.artilect.studio/
