In the studio…

The Overgrowth was established in 2018 as a comprehensive creative and branding studio. Catering to Central California and beyond, we value attentive, cultivated brand and package design, focusing on the understated elegance in simplicity. Inspired and sustained by the delicate and ever-changing lines, curves, folds, and flowerings of nature, we produce designs that are both graceful, malleable, and powerful. We happily work with new and existing businesses to help your brand, your products, and your dedicated vision thrive.

Let’s get acquainted…

Hello! I’m Erin. I’m the sole designer behind this studio, but I wouldn’t accomplish anything without my husband, Dan, who does the bulk of our illustration work (see it at @interleavings on instagram!). I studied Design | Media Arts at UCLA, but my initial focus was in photography, and usually I consider myself more of an art director than purely a graphic designer. I live and breathe aesthetics, and my obsession with pretty, ethereal things was a natural transition into refined and elegant design. I love working with clients who share similar aesthetic values. Dan and I live in coastal Santa Barbara with our two beloved cats, Fred & Ginger.
