The Mission

At ERS Design Co., our focus is on creating impactful brands and websites for animal rescues and shelters. We believe that every animal deserves a loving home and we work hard to support those who share our mission. 

Our Story

During my third semester of college, I found myself in a letterpress class – I also found myself mourning the sudden loss of my childhood dog, Shea (top picture). Shea was a rescue dog who made the best companion, car riding buddy, and was the snuggliest girl there ever was. People always say dogs are our best friends and that they leave far too soon; these couldn't have felt more real at that time. 

I coupled the loss with my letterpress class and stumbled upon a quote that still lingers in my head today: "Do what you love, not what you think you're supposed to do."


I always thought there was a singular path to a "happy" life that took you from high school to college (and a degree) then onto a corporate, 9-5 job with said degree. Throughout the second-half of 2022 and into 2023, I discovered that this path was the furthest from happy that I had ever been.

However, at the beginning of 2023, my husband and I started fostering dogs for a local rescue – and it reignited happiness, passion, and a fulfillment in life that I was so desperately seeking. The experiences opened my eyes to the sadness and struggles that accompany saving animals, but it also introduced me to an incredible community of selfless individuals.

Since then, I've continued to follow my heart in this adventure and decided there could not be a better time to start a journey and business that lights my fire and combines what I love – design and animals. 

There is nothing like an animal's love; it's an honor to help organizations save and find homes for animals in need.
