The Nimble Bee |


The Nimble Bee, LLC is the evolution of Erin Craft Design, a consultancy launched in 2004, dedicated to delivering strategic graphic design services on time and within budget. Pretty simple, really. Erin keeps busy by focusing on brand development as well as employee and financial communication projects for a variety of regional and national clients. And with a talented network of colleagues, she can tailor a strategic team of designers and writers for each project.

Erin built her career in Washington D.C., from small studios—Franek Design Associates and The Design Channel to large agencies—Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide and MHI Communications. Clients, projects, budgets, and requirements always varied, but the importance of strategy and quality, as well as clear communication and an efficient process, continues to inform her practice today.

Erin graduated magna cum laude from the University of Michigan, and hopes to get back to Ann Arbor more often now that she’s in Chicago. She can be found chasing her two-under-three girls, Nora and Evelyn and their ‘Chicago Brown Dog’, Roxie.
