Eric Donnell’s Background

In 2011, Eric Donnell established Idea Forge Studios as a web design, e-commerce, and internet marketing firm. Eric has worked with every company size and industry type over the last 11 years, even before Idea Forge Studios. He obtained a BS in Chemistry and a BS in Computer Science from East Stroudsburg University. After six years of experience as a chemist, he pursued a different path and started his firm.

That concludes my third-person discourse on myself.

Eric Donnell’s Experience

I created my first website back in 2006 for a friend.  They recommended I start designing them instead of following my chemistry dreams.  I figured that was crazy, but after building my first site, I fell in love. Now I enjoy working with different industries and trades for every design and learning something new. It was difficult migrating through the old HTML and CSS only days before CMS systems became the standard. But I have also embraced all the changes in our industry. I genuinely enjoy adapting our knowledge to bring the best website possible for my clients.  Currently I have now had the pleasure of working with clients from the USA, Ecuador, Italy, Germany, Japan and other countries. I can’t wait for the next challenging site experience.


Above all, my main talents now lay in advanced logistics and warehouse tracking systems for E-Commerce, POS systems, API integrations for financial software, taxes and shipping, booking and ticketing applications, graphic design, and working on displaying information websites in a logical and well thought out format.  I have worked with almost every CMS system under the sun and am always willing to tackle the few I haven’t encountered yet.


Finally, when relaxing, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful daughter Ember & my wife, Eli. I also enjoy hiking, gaming, escape rooms, board games, paddleboarding, kayaking, rock climbing, and my dog Naruto.
