Ericka is a Visual Storyteller who creates inventive ways to express campaign concepts that drive people to engage in global issues through the application of traditional and digital media. In her role at Purpose she works across a diverse range of campaigns, from mobilising creators and asking MEPs to fix digital copyright in the EU, to engaging the British people on the issues of air pollution and building assets and a collaborative space for people to openly discuss period poverty and to advocate for female empowerment.
Moving to England from the Philippines at the age of 10 with English barely as her third language, Ericka adopted the performing and visual arts as a way to express herself through other means. This artistic foundation would later propel her into the world of campaigning for brands and social issues. With a background in video production and a degree in Film & TV Studies at Brunel University, she learned to capture the moving image through the camera lens from conception and preparation, to editing and final delivery on platforms online or offline.
Prior to Purpose, Ericka has ventured in shooting and creating stop motion animations, written short films and viral videos, designed web content, explored photography and has been known to have a fascination for 2D 3D motion design. She has worked on campaigns for Disney Pixar, The Times and the Sunday Times, Tesco and for like-minded self-starter creatives.
Her collaborative nature, love for the arts and relentless curiosity creates the perfect balance to craft and continuously evolve as a creative in an ever-changing digital landscape where people grow hyper-connected every day. When Ericka is not making videos or other content, she has an unhealthy obsession with crafting miniature clay figurines, traveling far and wide to reach for aesthetic inspiration and using memes to add colour to any situation, big or small.
