DREXEL UNIVERSITY, ANTOINETTE WESTPHAL COLLEGE OF MEDIA ARTS & DESIGN

Erin’s Kryptonite includes naps, doughnuts, and ‘90s pop music. Despite succumbing occasionally to these soft spots, she has worked hard in creative media from an early age. Initially, Erin pursued architecture before realizing her true passion is graphic design, a program from which she will graduate with a BS in March 2016. She is a strong advocate of concept driven design, developed through ample research, and realized with hand-sketching. She will continue to pursue these skills after graduation as she begins a career in user experience design at EY Intuitive. The user centered design firm based in Philadelphia is where Erin completed her six month co-op and had the opportunity to collaborate with cross-discipline teams to deliver delightful experiences to clients. When not heavily caffeinated in the design studio, Erin enjoys sublime culinary experiences, concerts, and the company of her plump feline Kelli.
