Hi, my name is Jordan Erickson and I am a web designer and graphic artist for JR Motorsports. I currently live in Mooresville, NC.

While in high school I attended the Bismarck State College Technical Center's program for Graphic Design and Digitial Design. Senior year I was co-design editor for the Bismarck High School newspaper, the Hi Herald.

I graduated from Bismarck State College's Graphic Design and Communications program in the spring of 2010. Being in the program for the past two years has taught me so much about print and web design. And I came away with a rekindled interest in photography. Specifically motor sport photography.

I have a deep passion for motor sports. Looking back, my interest in motor sports really set me onto this career path at a young age. By time I was 14 I was working in Photoshop and learning the basics of HTML and doing design work for our local dirt track.

I feel having a working knowledge of print and web design sets me apart from other designers who have the same amount of experience as I do. Being able to not only design something, but be able to put together the working code is something I pride myself on.
