About 

My name is Elliott Lavi and I am a designer with a range of experience in architectural environments, branded installations, and product design.

I've spent my whole life aiming to improve the built world by creating new environments, products, and experiences and now I want to be able to reach as many people as possible with this goal. I graduated from USC in 2014 with a Bachelor of Architecture (five year degree) and an minor in Entrepreneurship from the Marshall School of Business. My greatest passion lies in traveling the world to gain as many global perspectives as possible. In doing so I hope to one day influence the masses with designs to benefit the built environment. 

Let's make something together.
