Who I Am
My name is Erin Morelli and I am a Graphic and Web Designer residing in the Albany, NY area. I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in electronic media, arts, and communication, focusing on interaction design, and a co-terminal master’s degree in human-computer interaction. I moved to the Albany area after graduating and work locally as a web and graphic designer serving a diverse client base. I have a passion for creating simple, clean user experiences and especially love the WordPress platform and responsive designs.
When I’m not working I enjoy biking, surfing the web, reading a good book or comic, writing, as well as watching and avidly tweeting about TV. I’ve also recently started geocaching, which has taken me on some great adventures.
