Girl Boss: Eirka Firm
When it comes to design, Erika Firm prefers to take the old fashioned route with pen, ink and paint. “I try to carve out at least one full day per week to get my hands dirty and explore new techniques,” the self proclaimed Girl Boss (she really is a Girl Boss, though) and Creative Director behind Analog Creative Co. explains
A spin off of Delphine, Analog Creative Co. sprang to life in 2003, and they’ve been on a creative journey ever since. The graphic design studio works with clients on projects ranging from Brand Development (think everything from brand strategy to trade show prep) to Graphic Design (media kits and logo design, to name a few) and Web and Digital Design (enter: email marketing, social media and analytics).
A typical day for Erika? Her Honey Do List includes everything from “crafting emotional connections” to “picking fonts, color matching, and chasing deadlines.” She also recently collaborated with fellow Lowcountry Local First member and photographer, Andrew Cebulka, on a photo shoot.“I’ve never met someone with such great energy!” she recalls. And currently, Erika and her team are working with Revel & Co., based out of Colorado, on designing a line of wrapping paper and party accessories.
When she’s not in the depths of all things design, you can find Erika exploring the Lowcountry with her husband and 11 year old son. “Our little one is having fun on our mini adventures and is becoming quite the photographer,” says Erika.
