Erik Vorhes

I believe the web should be accessible, readable, and usable, and that design is most beautiful when it calls attention to its content instead of itself. To those ends, in design I prioritize responsive layouts and precise typography, and in front-end development I emphasize progressive enrichment — separating structure, style, and interaction — with semantic markup, CSS-based layouts, and unobtrusive JavaScript.

I enjoy working with diverse teams to build things that can make people’s lives better: internal tools, enterprise and educational software, informational websites, and anything in between.

I work as a front-end engineer at Chegg, so my free time is somewhat limited — but feel free to hit me up by way of social media, etc., if you think I can be of help or if you just want to chat!

It has been a while, but I’m always up for talking about accessibility, typography, web development, and a number of other topics.
