    Creative Director & Partner at Core77

    Portland, OR

Eric Ludlum is a founding partner and creative director at Core77, a publishing company whose mission to serve the needs and interests of working designers is realized through a tightly focused roster of products and services, including this site, Coroflot. Core77 is one of the most well regarded media brands in the field of design and a pioneer in internet publishing; its flagship site, Core77.com, is the oldest web-based magazine, produced continuously since 1995. 20-plus years of entrepreneurial activity on the web has earned Eric a very particular skill-set and perspective, one which continues to find its best application in screwball schemes. Today Eric haunts the various nooks and crannies around Hand-Eye Supply, Core77's Portland, Oregon-based store for creative-types.
