"When it comes to creating visions out of ideas, Erica designs with her heart and with the client always in mind. Her creative aptitude is not only sophisticated, but smart, funny, and always on-point.
Her talents not only extend to her creative genius, but also in her ability to relate, translate, and present her work to a large audience. This innate quality allows her to work with passion and partner with you--so much so you'll be calling her your friend after the jobs done."
- CARRIE HOLM, PROCTER & GAMBLE, CUSTOMER TEAM MANAGER
'Working with Erica was a dream! She immediately understood my mission and connected with my vision, which made our collaboration so effective from the outset. Erica worked hand-in-hand with me on all aspects of brand development, drawing upon her wealth of experience in the corporate world and beyond.
In the end, she brought it all to life through my vibrant website, brochure, letterhead, and business cards. I still count on her to provide timely and valuable guidance well beyond the launch of the company, which gives me ongoing peace of mind. The cherry on top, is that Erica is a delightful person with a funny, easy going personality and high professional standards. I recommend her to everyone.'
- DR. MICHELLE MACRORIE, FOUNDER & CEO, AUTISM FROM THE STARTTM
"HEBO design studio consistently exceeds my wildest expectations regarding the ongoing design & vision I have for my boutique salon.
Right from the start, Erica’s goal is always to ‘get inside my head’ in order to understand my overall vision in relation to the vibe I want my company to represent. She is then able to fuse our imaginations and brilliantly create designs that perfectly tell ‘my story’.
Not only does Erica have a deep technical knowledge, she has an on-the-spot creativity that makes the process truly enjoyable. Her creative approach to solutions is always impressive; and the range of work that HEBO design studio offers means that I will only need HEBO for all of my future design needs."

"Hands down one of the finest Creative Directors in Chicago! I've had the pleasure of partnering with Erica on the P&G business at G2. She is an inspirational leader to her team, a strategic and thoughtful collaborator, and a big idea machine.
In addition to Erica's star qualities on the job, she is a genuine person with a terrific sense of humor - she is that person that people just naturally gravitate towards."
- MATT SCHELIN, G2, GROUP ACCOUNT DIRECTOR
"Erica is the most passionate, dedicated and capable Group Creative Director I’ve ever had the pleasure of working alongside. Her attention to detail and love for creative process are epic hallmarks of her leadership style, but it’s her fierce pursuit and capture of the Big Idea that makes our clients so happy.
A lot of creative directors are touted as “holistic thinkers,” but Erica has the uncanny ability to look at a creative theme, layout, headline, or concept and envision exactly how far it can extend or what it lacks; how to make it that much better, or when to leave it alone.
Amazing eye, incisive strategic thinker, promotional mastermind, and an inherent playfulness that makes her an exceptional team leader- Erica is a whirlwind of awesome and a priceless addition to any high-caliber creative team or agency."
- GINA DEBARTOLO, G2, SENIOR COPY WRITER

Clients consistently praise her work for being smart, strategic and cutting edge. Not to mention she's a wonderful presenter, which always comes in handy!
Every time I take a new position I find myself searching for another creative partner like Erica. She sets the bar exceptionally high and I have yet to find another creative I've enjoyed working with as much as Erica."
- ANNE SUMMA, MANAGEMENT DIRECTOR, FCB
