Erik Mallinson is a front end web designer, musician, artist, and illustrator.

He is a proponent of standards-based, responsive, accessible design. Most recently, he served as Web Production Specialist at MIT OpenCourseWare. In that role, Erik improved site accessibility, oversaw course quality standards, wrote interactive design elements, and rewrote CSS and HTML to be clean and modern, using UX design methods to inform and guide his process.

In his spare time Erik likes to write music on his OP-1 synthesizer, paint, with gouache and watercolor, and take sketch notes at conferences, meetings, or wherever else people are talking about ideas.

He enjoys riding his bike down the bike paths, playing (and losing badly at) Rogue-like indie games, playing Go, reading Tarot cards, and collecting minifig toys.
