At C2 Design Group, people and their spaces are our passion!

All of our designs start and end with a discussion about people: who they are, what they like, what they need, what environmental design features will help them to foster communication of their own.

With this focus on people, we decided to share more about our own staff, their passions and how they define creativity…

Meet Eric Vickerson: Eric has over 25 years of experience as a licensed architect. He just celebrated his second anniversary with C2!

Q: Why did you decide to pursue a career in architecture?
A: At an early age, I was influenced by my Dad, who is a civil engineer. I always enjoyed building as a child; I played with Lincoln Logs, tinker toys and erector sets. I used to use my Dad’s drafting tools to create drawings. Later, I decided to take architectural drawing classes in high school.

Q: What do you like best about being a part of C2?
A: This is by far the best company I have worked for. The great atmosphere and team members make C2 a fun place to work.

Q: Do you have a favorite sports team?
A: I was born in Massachusetts, so my teams are the Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins and Celtics. Boston all the way!

Q: What do you do for fun? What hobbies do you have?
A: I still enjoy building things to this day. I have a model train table in my basement and multiple Lego cities. My son like Legos too, so it’s something we can do together. I also enjoy scuba diving and am a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

Q: What fuels you throughout the day?
A: Cold brew with cream is my go-to. We have a cold brew maker that we keep at the office.

Q: Schenectady has such a cool walkable downtown environment. Do you have a favorite lunch spot?
A: On Wednesdays, the C2 Team goes out for Burger Day to the Manhattan Exchange.

Q: If you could design anything, what would it be?
A: If I could design anything, I’d design underwater housing, cliff side dwellings and a mountain top retreat.

Q: If you could share something you’ve learned or a piece of advice that was given to you, what would it be?
A: Keep the client happy!
