Graphic Designer + Illustrator + Photographer

Good design plays such an important role in having a successful business. It can help by making meaningful first impressions to your audience, differentiate yourself from your competitors, and boost your brand awareness. Good design helps your customers put their trust in you and your brand, creating a connection between you and your customers. My name is Erika, I'm a freelance designer, illustrator, and photographer based in Portland, Oregon. Specializing in working with small businesses, I've helped clients reach their audience with eye catching design, branding, illustration, and photography for all platforms. I have 4+ years of design in college and I have built upon my skills through experience working with a small studio, online tutorials and the willingness to learn! I can confidently say that today, I use InDesign, Photoshop, Lightroom and Illustrator at an expert level! With design experience in both the print and web worlds on top of photography, I have extensive knowledge in print, website, packaging, illustrating, social media, branding and email design. I believe in quality and impactful work. Let good design bring your brand success! Send me a message with some information about your goals and what you’re looking for help with. From there, I can answer any questions you have, and we can discuss your project in detail. I look forward to working with and getting to know both you and your business! Past Client Testimonial "I felt so in my element and comfortable with Erika. She'€™s relatable and really listens to every detail I rambled off in our meetings! I'€™m not going to lie, I was nervous for the final brand reveal because I am INCREDIBLY indecisive and I was afraid I'€™d have a hard time choosing my favorite (she provided 3-4 different presentations). In the end it came down to two, they weren'€™t similar AT ALL & gave off their own vibes. Erika was helpful with feedback and didn'€™t just sugar coat her response to whatever she thought I'€™d like to hear. I told her what I was looking for and she made it her mission to strike gold with the final look. And holy shit, she nailed it! I finally chose and it's beyond RAD! The logo is handwritten by Erika and seems so west coast. Basically the final product was a true example of why I outsourced this project to a bad ass artistic genius! If you'€™re looking for an artist who stretches beyond what'€™s trending and really tailors to your inspirations and ideas, then Erika is your gal! Thank you over and over again!"€ -Cait Rose Photography
