I'm Erika and I am an Art Director + UI Designer.

Welcome! My name is Erika Alvarez and I am a Southern California-based UI Designer, Art Director, and Front-end Developer. I specialize in creating website designs and native applications with scaling and conversion in mind. When I'm not designing, you'll often find me exploring new restaurants or doodling on Procreate.
