Who is Justin Hill?
I am an all-around creative. I work in the design, fabrication, and build world merging art and design together to create unique and beautiful spaces that tell a story.
When did you find your love for art?
It came out of a place of necessity when I was broke and struggling. One day, I was doing a build project with a friend and realized I really liked doing this. It sparked something in me that started this beautiful journey I'm on today.
Who are some of your biggest inspirations, and what is it about them that inspires you?
My friends and family. I get to see the ups and downs and the realities of life in all stages. These moments propel me to be the best version of myself for them now and for the future.
What gets you out of bed on those mornings when you’re not motivated to chase your dreams?
My commitments to the projects and people around me and knowing that even if today is a rough day tomorrow won’t be. Life is a beautiful wave. I'm just trying to find my groove and ride the shit out of it.
What are some of the strategies that you use to foster your creativity?
I need to have a balance of routine and spontaneity in my life. Routine is my workflow and how I stick to my commitments and goals for work, which is why Ethos is a massive part of that and keeping my crazy mind on task to completion. The spontaneity is the random camping trips to the mountains or a simple hike that I find my creative juices flowing again, and my ideas for the future and new opportunities start to arise.
What is your dream project?
My dream project is designing and building a space for innovation. Where tech, high-end design, custom furniture, art installations, and creative features are all included with no cap on budget. Also, that I get to bring in the top creatives from around the world to bring their “art” to the space.
What does success look like for you in 20 years?
Having my own design and build firm focusing on the builds of luxury homes, hotels, restaurants, and retail spaces.
