Erika Pixie is a graphic designer and artist from Brooklyn, NY whose practice is based upon creating long-standing collaborative partnerships built on honesty and purpose within the fields of art, culture, and commerce. Her work has won numerous awards including New York Design Awards, Cannes Lions, D&AD Pencil, and Promax.
