I'm Eric, a self-proclaimed design geek with a love for type that's rivaled only by my love for cake. I've been a designer in the magazine industry for the past 12 years but spend all my free time on Minted challenges! I discovered this site in 2011 while hunting down inspiration for designing my own wedding invites. Since then, I’ve had a renewed love for design and enjoy seeing where my creativity takes me.

Thanks for the compliment--back at ya! Your type wrangling is mind boggling! Must be nice to have such mastery of path adjustment.
Congrats on your "Inseparable" Judge's pick!! Your work is absolutely amazing and very inspiring!!
Congrats for you "Inseparable" win--a great design!
Thanks Eric! Right back at ya! You rocked this one (as usual ;)

Hi Eric! thins so much for helping me with my elaborate 'A new home for Christmas' design! You know i appreciate it SOO much. please let me know what you think about the changes? It's not easy to get that balance just right! P (http://www.minted.com/design-rating/85371)
Eric, thank you so much for your sweet comment and for encouraging me to post my design. I'm still not quite sure about it, and all the way up to the time I uploaded, I was thinking - maybe I won't upload this one. Your comment really helped me feel better about it. It's so awesome to get feedback and encouragement from uber-talented designers, like yourself! Thank you so much!!! :)
Thank you, Eric! I had no idea about the special prize until you said something! And congrats to you too! Your road map print looks like it shimmers...the light on dark just feels so right and reminds me of all the slow shutter streaming light photography of roads at night. The print would be cool anywhere, but I was thinking that it would be particularly awesome in the office of a civil engineering firm.
Thanks Eric! I am a big fan of your work!
Thanks, Eric. You too!
Thanks so much for the nice compliment - I'm really flattered :) Love your style!
Thank you so much for your sweet comment, Eric ! I already added your facebook, hope it's the right Eric ;) and thanks again for your invite to the group !

Thanks so much for your encouraging comment on my Love Buffet Feast, Eric! Phrosné
No problem Eric! I know, that was definitely a quickie challenge. I tried to throw around some concepts, but I found myself over thinking it. Hope you scoop up another win. You deserve it.

Hey Eric! I just started submitting pieces for the wedding design challenge. I went through to rate other submissions and I couldn't help but notice that a bunch of the ones that I loved had your face right next to them. Just wanted to stop in and give you props. Amazing work. Your use of fonts is incredible. Where do you get your font files from? Thanks for doing what you do, keep it up!
Thanks, Eric. Still trying to get my husband or teenager to help me with the facebook acct. Yes, I'm that technologically challenged that I can't do it by myself!
Thank you Eric for your comment on the wedding - stars invite. I really appreciate it; I think your work is just amazing.
Eric, I'm so glad I made the drive up to Venice last night. It was so much fun to meet everyone and to get all of that information that I've been missing out on! I will definitely try to get myself organized and onto facebook this week. Have fun in Mamouth and happy anniversary!

I've got my fingers crossed for this wedding challenge. You have some absolutely gorgeous designs!! My favorites are Celebrate Love and Blessed Union!

You are toooo kind Eric! But I love the title, so I'll humbly except it : ) Your typography is truly fabulous, and I didn't realize all the great designs you've done that I missed!

Hi Eric ! Thanks for your kind words and appreciation! I love you designs, especially the vintage ones, you´re very talented !
