Meet the Designer



Industrial Design

“I am a dynamic and focused Industrial Designer with a background in Fine Art. It is with pride, that I am graduating from OCADU with distinction. I've worked hard in design school, I try to do something "big" and cool every year. Whether it's winning OCAD's only DesignTO Best in Exhibition Herman Miller Award for my work on the show, or being very luckily selected to work in Paris at ENSCI for a week. I am also the lead coordinator for this year's ID GradEx.My previous career was as a hairstylist, which I did for five years in my hometown of Edmonton, Alberta. I still love style and fashion, and my work was featured in Western Canada Fashion Week. After I moved, my old salon friends would tell me how much my clients missed me. Not only do I have the technical skills of a great designer, I have the soft skills too.Which is why I call myself a "creative goblin". I love the creative process, and if there is a mode of expression or making I can get my hands on, I will do it. This I honed during the pandemic, when "goblinmode" was made Oxford Dictionary's word of the year.”

She crafts everything from: Midcentury Gothic furniture, domino tequila bottles, talking makeup compacts, AI design apps, and vampire stakes.When she isn’t peering over the glowing slab that is her drawing tablet, Erin enjoys collecting vinyl, going for long walks in the rain, brewing mead, and playing video games like Final Fantasy XIV.Penultimately, she dreams of owning a creepy Victorian farmhouse, and a goat named Flip Flop.
