Erin Sarofsky
President, Owner, Executive Creative Director

Sarofsky founder and executive creative director Erin Sarofsky got up the nerve to launch her own design-driven production studio in 2009, and she hasn't looked back since. In fact, the experiences keep getting sweeter. Her work with a Who's Who list of top-level marketing and entertainment industry executives is based on deep relationships forged over time. For example, her experiences with directors Joe and Anthony Russo, with whom she collaborated on main titles for "Community," "Happy Endings" and "Animal Practice," led to her studio's selection to create the main titles for the Marvel blockbusters "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Ant-Man," "Captain America: Civil War," "Doctor Strange" and "Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2." Her wealth of industry connections also draws from past experiences as a Creative Director for Superfad in New York and for Digital Kitchen in Chicago. So far in her career, she has led commercial projects for Aleve, Capital One, CenturyLink, General Motors and McDonald's, among many others.

Erin earned her BFA in graphic design and an MFA in computer graphics from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Best Main Title Design in 2006, over the past several years she has spoken at numerous universities, Toronto International Film Festival, AIGA's National Design Conference, Canada's DesignThinkers National Design Conference, the Lake FX Summit and at OFFF Creative Festivals in both Barcelona and Mexico City, to name but a few. In 2014, she was honored with a Women in Film Chicago Focus Award; in 2017, Sarofsky earned an in-depth profile in the pages of Communication Arts, while the editors of Graphic Design USA named Erin among their People to Watch; she is also the Honorary Chair for Women's Global Education Project's Annual Ndajee Fundraiser.

Looking to the future, Erin and her talented crew of artists, designers and producers at Sarofsky are excited to continue to bring new levels of conceptual design to major brands across the advertising and entertainment industries.
