About

Greetings and welcome to my little piece of the Internet!
I’m Erin A.K.A. Aeryn and this is my fancy new Blog/Portfolio site. I am a freelance visual designer located in lovely Northeastern Pennsylvania.

I’m obsessed with great design! I troll the earth and web to find examples of it! I love it so much I thought I would  share my findings with you! I also have my portfolio on here for your viewing pleasure. I am available for all kinds of design projects and would love to  hear from you about any you have available.

 

 

Thanks for visiting! Come back soon!

~ Erin
