Hi.

Welcome to Erickson Studio.

Capabilities

Simple. Good.

Web Design

We design websites — and web–based applications — that are great–looking and drop–dead easy to use. That’s what it’s about. By the way, is your website/web–app mobile ready?

User Interface (UI) Design

We know how to design drop–dead gorgeous, easy to use user interfaces. If you have the back–end knowhow, but need an awesome UI, we’ll be a great team. Even if you don’t have back–end knowhow, we’ll still be a great team.

Web Development

We’ve been designing and developing websites since before most people knew there was an Internet. WordPress? Check. e–Commerce? Check. Custom project? Check check.

Photoshop to HTML/CSS

If you have a website design in a Photoshop file, we’ll create (static) HTML/CSS templates for you. Our markup is always semantic, always well–commented and ready to use.

Branding and Identity

Remarkable brands and identities. Our design, business and experiential backgrounds can help you create your business’s personality.

Graphic Design

Business cards, letterhead, envelopes, stationery, brochures, direct mail pieces…you get the idea.

Thank you for viewing our site.

Design

The last name Erickson is obviously Scandinavian, so we embraced the Scandinavian design heritage of designers such as Jacob Jensen and David Lewis, best known for their work with Bang and Olufsen.

All of the text is set in lowercase (via CSS) because of our corporate minimalist design philosophy.

The headline fonts are Futura Medium, and the body font is Questrial (if your browser supports the @font-face specification).

Programming

The erickson studio site is hand–crafted valid HTML5 and CSS. The CSS was generated with SASS/Compass. The special effects were created using CSS and javascript (jQuery). PHP is also used for other technical aspects of the site. The site was built on Mac OS X machines and thoroughly tested for other operating systems and browsers.
