Eric Podlin is a
web and graphic designer.

Hey! I'm Eric, nice to meet you!

I'm a designer from the Chicago area currently looking for a new team to become a part of. With over 6 years of experience, I've been all over the design world. From infographics and advertisements to large scale, big dollar web projects, I've had my hands on a little bit of everything. These days the web has been my home, but with a never-ending amount of curiosity and a deep desire to learn, nothing keeps me from trying something new.

Is your team looking for an experienced designer who is both great at his work AND great to be around? Are you a group of totally cool people that I'd be happy to see every day? If you answered yes to both, then definitely shoot me an email and lets talk! You can also get in touch on LinkedIn if that's more your speed.

Below is a selection of projects I've worked on recently. If you have any questions regarding my work, or would like to talk to me about your own, feel free to get in touch.
