Hello! I am Erika Mackley and I love all things graphic design and illustration. My work aims to create a visually pleasing aesthetic while communicating and captivating an audience. I am inspired by colors, lines, shapes, pattern, hand drawn lettering, clean typography and conceptual thinking. I am graduating this April from Eastern Michigan University with a BFA in graphic design. I am constantly creating, learning and growing as a designer and as an individual.
