  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Erica has a unique background as an architectural designer, interior designer, branding specialist, educator, and product designer. Her skills are balanced in both design and technical details, which offers a holistic design approach to her projects.

 

Throughout the span of her 11+ year career, Williams has a total of 3 million+ sq ft of built projects, and has worked as a co-designer on numerous high-profile commercial Architectural and Interior Design projects such as: Mercedes Benz-USA Headquarters (Interior Design Magazine Award), Boeing Defense Headquarters, Capital One 360 Banking Cafes, Miami World Center - Block F, Co-working Spaces, Workplace (Office) Renovations, and Cafe Designs. 

 

Her early signs of professional leadership were displayed while working at the award-winning design firm, Gensler (2010-2017), where she worked as an architectural designer, a technical interior designer, co-created programs for the company, as well as serving as one of the youngest Practice Area Leaders for the firms' Product Design group. 

 

In addition to design consulting, she is a design business coach and mentor for The Design Bloc's 16,000+ online global network, and created a digital school for students and young professionals called The Design Bloc Academy.

She currently lives in Florida and enjoys traveling, gardening, painting, and playing the piano and ukulele for her friends and family. She has a Masters in Architecture degree (2009) from The University of South Florida and is currently enrolled in the Harvard Business Analytics program at Harvard University (2021).
