Design to me is a way of life; creating brands with spirit and visually enchanting things to tell a story makes my world go around. I can’t remember a time when I was not creating something. It began in traditional art, painting and textile design, and as a teenager, I started getting serious about design. My first job as a designer was at the age of 18 for a small magazine.
I worked in the circulation department, and the head designer quit - at the time I did not have much experience - but I took the opportunity to convince the boss to let me prove my craft, and he gave me the chance of a lifetime. Ten years later after working as a lead designer/art director at an agency in Michigan, I met the amazing Alijah Villian and after some creative dueling against one another at the advertising agency, we left together and started Erin and Alijah together.
It has been a creative experience beyond any artist's wildest dreams so far, and I can't wait to see what's around the next corner for us.
Typography - I love letters and the detail of the shapes to communicate a meaning.
Composition - where things are placed are very important the piece.
I love any kind of project that involves telling a great story visually.
