Sarofsky Corp. founder and executive creative director Erin 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 “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” 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 AT&T, American Express, Budweiser, Coca-Cola, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, McDonald’s, McGraw-Hill, PBS and X-Games, and main title projects for Dreamworks, Marvel, Paramount Pictures, Spyglass Productions and Touchstone Pictures, 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 SCAD’s Inspire series, and at the OFFF Creative Festival in Barcelona. In 2014, she was honoured with a Women in Film Chicago Focus Award.
Looking to the future, Erin and her talented crew of artists, designers and producers at Sarofsky Corp. are excited to continue to bring new levels of conceptual design to major brands across the advertising and entertainment industries.
