Erin founded Till to bridge the gap between modern business practices and the world of education. In 2014, Erin announced the launch of Till during her Creative Mornings talk in Chicago. Prior to Till, Erin used a $3,000 gift to launch the nonprofit EPIC, which builds volunteer experiences that mobilize and inspire creative people to make their cities stronger communities. Since 2007, EPIC has provided $4M+ in pro-bono design services to 50+ nonprofit organizations in Chicago and Minneapolis by engaging 1000’s of the most talented creatives in volunteerism. In 2012, she opened the HOW National Design Conference by sharing the EPIC story. She founded Borough + Block, and has worked with innovative design firms like gravitytank, Faust, and IDEO. She’s been Adjunct Faculty for the graduate program at the IIT Institute of Design and for graduate programs at Northwestern University.
