Eric Haze (born 1961) is an artist and graphic designer from New York City. During his early years as graffiti writer in the 1970s, Haze was tagging the name "SE3" before taking on his more popular identity as "Haze". He has a Haze Brand store in the Harajuku neighborhood of Tokyo, Japan.
Among Haze's most recognizable design works are the now iconic early hip-hop logos for Public Enemy, EPMD, Delicious Vinyl, and MTV; as well as album covers for the Beastie Boys and Tommy Boy Records. He wrote the text for the cover of the Beastie Boys' Check Your Head album.
He has his own limited-edition versions of G-Shock, Nike, and New Balance shoes. Eric Haze also appeared in the seminal 1983 documentary Style Wars. Photographs of his work appear in the book Subway Art.
