Erika Rathje, Designer

What’s Your Business?

I help my clients do good in the world by doing awesome on the web. I craft usable, beautiful websites that help my clients and their visitors achieve their goals. I also offer design for small print projects.

What's Your Neigbourhood And Why Do You Love It?

I live in the urban core of North Vancouver. I love that my street is bookended by parks; that I can walk to a park in 10 – 15 minutes, like where I grew up. I love that I can get almost anything I need by foot or bicycle, and that it’s transit-accessible.

How Does Your Business Work To Better Our World?

I help others advocate for the environment, health, local food, and community through great design. I also support businesses who work to reduce their negative impacts and amplify positive impacts on their community and our environment through their services, products and/or practices.

Why Is Local Important To You?

A community is made of its people. Its people create flourishing businesses and organizations, support each other, and intrinsically feed back into the community in a way that corporate giants and large chains cannot. I love meeting small business owners and having conversations when I go into shops.
