TESTIMONIALS

Lon Peterson

Communications Manager at City of Palo Alto

Erin is, without a doubt, one of the most organized and talented employees I've managed in my 20+ years of working. Her ability to multitask coupled with her positive can-do attitude make Erin the go-to employee for our department. Beyond all her talents, she's a pleasure to work with. She's a team player that get the big picture, doesn't complain, remains positive, and goes the extra mile to make she meets her deadlines. If you are considering hiring Erin, you won't regret it.

Jen Enrique

Product UI/UX Designer

Erin is a well-rounded team member who brings a lot of positivity to the work environment and a can-do attitude to any project. I managed Erin for a product re-design in which marketing demographic data, feature requirements, and aesthetic considerations all had to be considered for the UI/visual designs she delivered. She was able to extend the established visual look & feel and produce interfaces that consistently met and exceeded requirements and expectations. Erin would definitely be an invaluable addition to any company or agency.
