WHO IS ERIKA? I'm a brand designer with experience creating digital and print materials, for legal, healthcare and pharmaceutical, medical education, architecture, non profits, financial, real estate, music promotions, theater promotion, corporate identity, educational publishing development, and editorial to name a few.

I am flexible and resourceful in the face of changing expectations, deadlines and requirements, fastidious with file creation and typography. I've been noted, by previous managers, to have exceptional time management. I have managed a design department with 1-3 designers. I am intelligent, honest, ethical and have a straightforward style of communication. Former coworkers have noted "(she) has a pleasant personality, which remains calm under pressure."

Accolades from my last position at Mayer Brown from clients, people I worked with daily, projects concept to completion.

I love to travel. I'm an avid reader, huge live music fan, curious Chicago explorer and relatively fearless urban cyclist. I'm an advocate for public transportation, and walkable cities #walkbiketransit

I indulge my international typography obsession on my instagram account.

My Pitador rescue dog, Sonic, is the cutest dog in the world. Find your new best friend where I found Sonic. I'm so grateful to them for finding my sweet dog.
