Erica Schoonmaker is an interdisciplinary (aka: “unicorn”) designer who specializes in design and development for the web. This includes web/visual/UI/product design and front-end development.
She got her start designing websites at the tender age of 10, when she begged her dad to buy her the book HTML for Dummies. Throughout her teenage years, Erica maintained several fan sites and a personal blog. Since then she has grown up with the evolution of the internet, learning new technologies as they have been introduced. (She even started using WordPress, the most popular blogging platform, when it was first released in 2003.) Her personal blog eventually evolved into what is now Little & Fierce, a blog about travel, larp, and living with an invisible disability.
After college, Erica moved to San Francisco, CA to pursue a career in product design, working for both startups and large corporations. Currently she is a full-time employee at CBS Interactive and has some availability for freelance projects.
