Creative Characters S3 E14: From Basquiat to branding: how Erwin Hines creates space for community, dialogue, and collective liberation.
Born to parents who operated a development company specializing in urban planning, Erwin Hines’ creative life began with an interest in architecture and urban planning but shifted to art, design, and brand building after several serendipitous events.
In a time where concepts like empathy and inclusivity have become trendy catchphrases, Hines decided to step away from agency life, where he had been actively involved with DE&I initiatives, to build his own brand, Future is Color. Erwin designs and produces intentionally crafted garments and hosts in-person events at Future is Color’s mixed-use studio in San Diego, California, focused on the mission of building accessible space for intentional conversation around collective liberation.
