Erica Wakerly is Design Director at modernsurface and founder of ERICA WAKERLY wallpapers and textiles, which she established after completing an MA in 2005 at the Royal College of Art, London, in Printed Textiles.

Erica originally trained as an illustrator (BA (hons) University of Brighton 1999) and drawing still forms the foundation of her design work. She has also worked as a graphic designer for many years, for a broad range of clients including many projects for the BBC.

Her wallpaper and textile products are distributed in the UK and internationally for residential and commerical projects.

Other recent collaborations have included licensing designs to Apple and her concrete tiles range to Kaza Concrete (available from Domus tiles in Clerkenwell).

Erica has also been excited to work closely with Polly Dunbar in developing her new range of wallpapers for modernsurface, which will be available soon.
