Johnny Schillereff is a visionary and heart driven human responsible for founding the successful skateboard brand Element.

As a creative entrepreneur, Schillereff has always been dedicated to setting the brand apart from the pack, and decided to focus in on a connection to nature as part of the brand’s ethos—a philosophy that has stuck with Element right up to the present day.

Desillusion editor in chief Sebastien Zanella, met Johnny at Element’s new office, 'The Branch’ in Costa Mesa, to discover more about the man & his unique vision on skateboarding, industry & life.
