Greetings! I'm Veronica Erb.
I recently collaborated with the Morning Edition team to create a book guide for the Morning Reads book club of Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free. Hope you all enjoy it.
I design, research, and illustrate.
Through April 2015, I am one of three co-chairs for the IA Summit. It will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, April 23-27. Follow along with this community-organized conference through the IA Summit behind the scenes posts on my blog.
From 2011-2014, I planned and moderated UX research, prototyped new designs, and contributed to information architecture strategies at DC UX agency EightShapes.
From 2008-2011, I made websites and advocated for users at a non-profit now a part of FHI 360. Through usability testing and non-leading interviews, I learned ways to make the Rwanda Education Commons helpful for users in teacher training schools. I served as REC’s front-end developer and prototyper, and contributed to its user interface design.
