Erin Lawless Piggott

I am a graduate of the University of Georgia where I received a Bachelor of Fine Art in Fabric Design and a Master of Science in International Trade and Merchandising with an emphasis in Sustainable Fashion. 

I currently hold the position of Art Director and Designer at Surface Print Source, a print studio in Philadelphia. Initially, I was hired as a print designer and sales consultant. This was an immersive opportunity to learn about the variety of markets and clients of the studio. As a self-starter with a natural eye for trends and design, I was quickly promoted to Art Director. 

I find so much joy in what I do as a designer. I love the impact good design can have on objects and spaces we interact with daily- turning something from mundane to meaningful. I believe the best design not only focuses on the aesthetics of a product but considers the entire lifecycle from raw materials to the end-user.
