Hi there! My name is Eric James Wilson.

My pronouns are he / him / his.
I'm a communication designer who specializes in digital design, brand identity and strategy for big and small companies, non-profits and the cultural sector.  I love to help solve other people's problems through user research and informed design decisions, and I'm a stickler for process. When I'm not creating, I like to hone my home cooking skills. Check out my LinkedIn, and if you're intersted in working with me, or just want to say hello feel free to reach out!
