Design has always been a passion for Erika Jack, though the path she’s followed to graphic design has, at times, been as intricately curved as calligraphy. A Charlottesville, Virginia-based graphic designer whose work has been featured in Southern Living and Southern Weddings, Erika’s journey began some twelve hundred miles away at the University of Nebraska, where she majored in interior design with a minor in graphic design.

Erika worked in high-end residential interior design before she moved to Charlottesville, where she accepted a plum position at a local home store that’s a favorite among national shelter magazines. It was there, at the owner’s behest, that she began dabbling again in graphic design—starting with wedding and event invitations and personal stationery—and quickly she became hooked. She soon evolved into logo work and branding, and with that, Erika Jack Design was born.

In addition to Southern Living and Southern Weddings, Erika’s work has been featured in The Knot,  Style Me Pretty, Victoria magazine, and countless other blogs and publications. Erika follows a bespoke philosophy, creating custom-made items that are tailored to her clients’ individual styles and using only the finest papers and techniques. Her client base spans from the East Coast to the West Coast.

Erika is the design director of The Scout Guide, a publication that focuses on local artisans, artists and entrepreneurs in sixty cities with two million books in circulation. She lives with her husband, daughter and two dogs in Charlottesville. When she isn’t designing, she enjoys working with her antique Golding Pearl No. 3 letterpress, painting, renovating and remodeling her 1940s-era Colonial Revival home, The Shins, and, most of all, being with her family.
