Don Brown gives Emerica focus by assigning the brand its first full-fledged Team Manager, Justin Regan. Justin's extensive background in skateboarding, his close rapport with the Emerica team riders--as well as his ambitious drive and forward-thinking vision--helps develop Emerica into the straight-up, no-nonsense, well-oiled skateboarding shoe brand that we all know and love today.

Emerica art director Yogi Proctor designs the Triangle logo, which quickly becomes the instantly recognizable symbol of the brand.
