Erin Shorthill Designer

“The Cheerleader”

Erin is an exceptional designer, a native Oregonian, and a proud mom of two boys. She graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelor of Science in graphic design with a focus on interaction design.

Erin was a hairstylist for nearly a decade before deciding to follow her passion for visual design. She loves how moving pixels can solve complex problems and how design can have a profound influence on the success and perception of a brand. She enjoys refining type and giving vector illustrations shape through texture and color and she’s constantly studying and learning how to make user experiences better.

Aside from design, Erin loves pointing a telescope at the sky, discovering constellations, studying the moon, and witnessing meteor showers. She also builds a mean lego spaceship and has a new found love of listening to audio books on the way to work.
