Erin Rinker

Graphic Designer

Oakland, CA, USA
I'm a talented, tenacious graphic designer. I’m adventurous and tackle challenges with energy like designing a lamp within a 2-hour constraint using only household objects like gummi worms and wire for a design project.

As you can tell, I’m highly adaptable and make use of what tools I have available.
