Welcome to Tastes Like Burning Design, portfolio and profile of me, Erich Lazar. Tastes Like Burning Design is my moniker and motto, it’s my perspective and personality, it’s my idiocy and idiom. It’s a reminder for me to never take life or design too seriously, to simplify and seduce. If you’re not familiar with the source, it is a quote from Ralph Wiggum, a beloved character from The Simpsons, who can only describe the poisonous berries he ate as such in the episode “Das Bus” on February 18, 1998. It made me laugh harder than I had ever laughed before and I still smile when I hear it today. I want my life and career to be as full as that moment, to be both dangerous and absurd, to be both senseless and full of sense.
