Erjon Metohu

President & Creative Director

Erjon started Eri Design in 2005, and has since grown the company into a multi-faceted team loaded with talent. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from Becker College here in Worcester. Fast forward to present day, and he has garnered five distinctive website design awards for outstanding work. Erjon guides the creative direction of our projects and is always thinking about what would serve users best. It’s a lot of work to run a business, but when Erjon has free time, he enjoys snowboarding, mountain biking, and exploring different corners of the world.

Raffi DerSimonian

Senior Partner & Lead Strategist

Raffi carries an extensive amount of marketing and digital media experience under his belt. Since receiving his graduate degree from Clark University in professional marketing and communications, Raffi has consulted on a range of industries and served in leadership positions for higher education institutions across Massachusetts and Maine. It’s no surprise that his leisure time involves lots of live music, culinary arts, and adventures. Raffi is actually a musician himself, and his third album is in the works!

Jordan Aubin

Web Content Manager & Marketing Assistant

Jordan fulfills several critical tasks on our team, including web content management, search engine optimization, and usability testing. He’s a Worcester native and graduate of Assumption College, where he studied English and learned his love of creative writing. Jordan loves the ability to use his writing skills to drive and improve web experiences. In his free time, Jordan likes to play his PS4 and hit the links (when the New England weather permits, of course). Fun fact: he can solve a Rubik’s cube in less than 2 minutes.

Storm Rockwell

Senior Developer

Storm is an expert in WordPress and brings over eight years of development experience to our team. He’s fluent in PHP and JavaScript, and embraces the opportunities to develop new applications that solve problems. Like Edwin, he is a WordPress core contributor and a plugin developer. Aside from coding, Storm is a seasoned skier, virtual reality buff, and has two adorable Bengal cats named Ajax and Json. Can you guess what they’re named after?

Edwin Cromley

Senior Developer

Edwin brings a wealth of technical expertise to our team, including computer engineering and digital security. An active member of the WordPress community, Edwin is a core contributor and helped develop the new Gutenberg text editor. He enjoys the solidarity of nature and spends most of his time gardening, hiking, or tinkering with electronics. He’s also been to the Arctic Circle in Svalbard!

Ryan Barry

Lead Designer

Since 2015, Ryan has served as our lead designer. He approaches each project with a user experience design focus and thrives off of solving complex user challenges. His designs are always a tasteful mixture of simplicity, clean lines, and attention-demanding aesthetics. He pretty much designs 24/7, but when he’s not, he spends time with his two Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Lola and Sierra.

Jarrod Erskine

Digital Marketing Intern

Jarrod joined us in the Spring of 2019 as an intern from Becker College. He’s currently a sophomore marketing major and psychology minor with aspirations to work at SAP upon graduating. Jarrod’s helping expand our digital marketing efforts and is also helping with sales for our software as a service platform, Canvaspace. He is an avid gamer and a massive fan of Game of Thrones.

Mark Marzeotti

Web Developer

Mark has been working as a WordPress developer with the Eri Design team since 2015. He graduated from Johnson & Wales University in 2013, where he studied Graphic Design with a web concentration. Shortly thereafter, he fell in love with WordPress and the community of volunteers surrounding it. In his off time, he likes experimenting with his skills building sites wherever he sees a potential community or problem he can solve. He’s currently particularly interested in the podcast space.
