Born and raised in Upstate New York, Erika Johnson is a graphic designer currently living and working in New York City.
Erika’s work explores current trends such as minimalism, hand lettering, iconography, and pattern. Her designs are thoroughly modern solutions that yield clear, concise messages. Recently, she has been exploring the ancient arts of macramé and weaving; refreshed by their tactile charm, calming qualities and a working process that is meditative and grounding.
Erika attended Virginia Commonwealth University and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design in 2015. Her love of the unique, diverse city has been a major influence on the way she thinks and creates. Her hobbies include reading a good book in the park, playing the guitar and spending summers exploring all of New York City’s most delicious ice cream spots.
Looking forward, Erika hopes to grow into a multifaceted designer working in the fields of branding and identity design, graphic design, art direction, digital, packaging, and editorial design. She also hopes to venture into fields such as publishing, styling, and event coordinating.
