Hello, I am Erin and I own a graphic design studio, Erin Waineo Design, in Northern Michigan. In case you are wondering you pronounce my last name "way-knee-oh!"
At EWD, I specialize in logo design and brand development along with packaging and web design. I’ve been in the design industry for over 10 years, beginning in Grand Rapids where I graduated from Kendall College of Art and Design. Now I get the joy of living and designing in beautiful Traverse City.
