I'm Erin Nolan

I'm a digital product designer, web3 educator, and lifelong learner. I love sharing knowledge to help others discover new interests and build welcoming communities.

Product design is a form of psychology and friendship. It's a practice of deeply understanding people's needs and motivations—of noticing obstacles and articulating challenges.


Good design makes the unfamiliar feel less daunting while making the familiar feel fresh. It meets people where they are and gets them where they want to be.

My approach to design is centered around people

I've designed products for companies that millions of people use daily
