This week's featured artisan is Erin of EdUB Graphic Art and Design. A super talented graphic artist, Erin offers logos, business cards, banners, blog layouts and more in her Etsy shop. Some of her favorite logos are featured here.
Tell me a little bit about you and what you do.
My name is Erin and I'm currently moving from place to place with my husband's construction job. It was hard for me to find work in this new place because not only was the economy horrible, but I was five months pregnant (and despite what the law says, people don't want to hire a pregnant woman!) Enter, Etsy! I started designing logos for people in alchemy and then opened shop in March. I've had such a blast with it! I do custom logos, blogs, etsy shop make-overs, photo editing, print design, invitations, etc. I'm always open to custom requests!!!
What 3 phrases best describe your work?
Unique, lovely, girlie :)
What inspires you?
COLORS! I love mixing different colors, especially blues and greens (thus why my logo is blue and green!)
What drives you to create what you do?
I just love art and I love being able to create while making some extra cash on the side...even better :)
What makes your work unique?
I think I have a totally different style from a lot of designers...partially because I haven't had formal training. My ideas come from me and the more I practice, the more creative I can get.
What role does your work play in your life? What role would you like it to play?
Work is important to me, but my family is my first priority. Any extra time my husband has at home, I spend it with him...other things will be put on hold. After baby...more things will probably be put on hold :) However, I believe in balance in all things and I will definitely keep working to keep my sanity!!
How do you see your work and/or your business evolving in the next five years?
I really hope to see a greater clientele...I LOVE working with repeating clients because I know their style and it's so easy to work with someone you feel you know! I have met some really great people on etsy and I hope to continue to do so.
