My name is Erik Martinez Rodriguez and I am a visual designer based in Ruston, Louisiana. I specialize in crafting brand identities as well as dabbling in sports design. I am currently a graphic designer at a sign production shop and do freelance work on the side.
My goal is to create visually compelling designs that are strategic, functional and communicate with people. Whether it's a simple logo or a large wall wrap, I am ready to embark on any creative journey.​​​​​​​
When I am not in front of a computer, I am playing with my dogs Choco and Lazy or relaxing with Michi and Kitty, our lovely cats . Big fan of horror movies, sad music, and a Big Twitch/Youtube Gaming stream watcher.
If you have a project that you'd like to work together on, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
