Magazine: 50 People You Should Know
Throw design work at Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design grads Jeremy Shamrowizc, 29 [right], and Jesse Meyer, 26, and their visions become metal, concrete and wood creations like you’ve never seen. Sure, they can draw and sculpt. But they also weld and bend steel. They pour concrete molds for tabletops and counters that have been mistaken for marble. Meyer left for California to pursue his dream of working in special effects after graduation. But then Shamrowicz fell upon two floors of Third Ward space and called Meyer, who drove three days straight back to Milwaukee. The result: Flux Design, a 3-year-old company now based in Riverwest, with employees averaging age 26. The group also runs Gallery 326 on Water Street, where they hawk their wares and host one of the hottest Gallery Night spots. They’ve designed and produced the interior of the nightclub Eve, the lobby of advertising firm Laughlin /Constable, a plethora of condo interiors and individual furniture pieces for the well-to-do. “I’m the face guy ande [Jesse’s] the backbone,” says the boisterous Shamrowicz, whose office is wallpapered with Star Wars figures[still in the box]. Did we mention that his son’s name is Anakin?
