Book of Elijah

Elijah Robbins is one of the new shop assistants here in Design Works! Elijah has a very unique sense of humor and style. You will often notice him making others laugh and listening to very obscure indie bands. Fun fact, Elijah is also a Leo! Let us introduce you to Elijah!

What drew you to apply to Design Works?

“The atmosphere, I really like working with my hands, and its nice to work in a place in an environment that I like.”

If you could add anything to the Design Works office, what would it be?

“More decorations and more stuff on the wall. I would change that yellow-green wall, probably to a mustard color or something.”

Scrappy or Lucky?

“Lucky. Scrappy makes me uncomfortable.”

If you weren’t a shop assistant, what would you be?

“An author or an illustrator.”

What is your favorite movie?

“‘Synecdoche; New York’. It’s really long and kind of boring. I like really long and boring movies.”

What is your favorite restaurant?

“There’s a really good place in Austin called Thai Cuisine. I love when people put peanuts in things when I don’t expect them to. It’s always a nice surprise.”

If you were hosting SNL, who would you want as your musical guest?
