Profile

Eric is writing in third person and is OK with it. E is a senior designer at a small studio in Charleston South Carolina called Fuzzco. E participated in the 2016 Typography Summer School in Gowanus Brooklyn, hosted by Fraser Muggeridge and Other Means.

E recently designed a headline/display font called Coplestons that you can buy for money. E used to work at Nelson Cash in Chicago, and also lived in Chicago from 2005—2015.

When not graphic designing, I may be found painting a wall, vacuuming a floor, reading books, skateboarding or staring into space.
