    Hello! I am an artist, designer, and digital native—with a passion for collaboration, creating engaging user experiences, and crafting elegant solutions to complex problems. While my expertise is digital, I also love print and experience design, and am always focused on tailoring solutions to the appropriate context to tell a story. I’m as interested in strategy as I am execution, and am a fierce advocate for best practices and pushing design to be ahead of the curve. I’m also committed to progressive politics, and am always seeking opportunities to advance the goals of social, environmental, and economic justice.

    Full-time Freelancer since 2020. Before I started a career in graphic design, I worked in hospitality where I fine-tuned my personality traits and principles: kind optimism, intellectual curiosity, work ethic, empathy, self awareness and integrity*. These traits, combined with an education from Pratt Institute, technical skills and 10+ years of agency and in-house experience working in the US and Europe, are what set me apart from others. What people say about me... "Emily has a talent for directing the client through the creative process and providing educated solutions to their pain points". "She's one of the most talented, creative, and collaborative designers I've ever had the pleasure to work with". "Emily is hardwired to design and create, and it shows in her work...Her personality can make the most mundane of projects fun". "She has that rare ability to see the big picture while still attending to the details". *Six hospitality traits identified by Danny Meyer.

    I'm a multidisciplinary graphic designer and web developer with over a decade of experience working in branding, print, UX, and web design. I started my career working in logo design and specialty printing and have spent the past nine years in the publishing industry doing a mix of print and digital design. As the art and web director for World Literature Today magazine, I managed all aspects of design for the print and online edition of the magazine including cover design, page layout, typesetting, ad design, marketing campaigns, newsletters, and more. I ignited the magazine's online communication strategies and increased website visits by over 33% and expanded the magazine's social media following from 500 to over 450,000 followers. At WLT I also developed and designed a suite of websites for the organization using Wordpress, Drupal, and Shopify among other content management systems. I was selected as one of Folio:’s 15 Under 30 in 2012, received the 2018 Waintroob/Meyers Superior Performance Award from the University of Oklahoma, and won a 2019 Creaties Award as the leader of several WordPress web development projects.

For my freelance work for the University of Oklahoma Libraries, my design work received a 2018 Oklahoma Museum Associate Award and a 2017 American Library Association PR XChange Award.

    I believe that design is not just about aesthetics, but about creating experiences that connect with audiences and leave a lasting impression. I have always been fascinated by the power of design to shape the world around us. Whether it's a brand mark that instantly communicates a company's unique identity or a website that engages visitors and drives conversions, I believe that great design has the ability to transform businesses and change lives. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to work with clients from a wide range of industries, including technology, finance, retail, hospitality and security to name a few. I approach each project with a fresh perspective, taking the time to understand the client's goals and ambitions before diving into the design process. My style is clean, modern, and minimalist, with a focus on the seamless synergy between typography, eye-catching imagery, and colour. I believe that the key to effective design is simplicity, and I strive to create designs that are not only visually striking but also easy to understand and use. Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and I hope to work with you on your next project.

    Being a graphic designer for over 25 years, I have gained a solid understanding of what it takes to “make things look their best.” The level of commitment I bring to my work and the importance in being a designer for today’s market place are just two things I can offer. I am a highly motivated, detail oriented individual with great enthusiasm for the work I do and the people I work with. A degree in digital and traditional Graphic Design has provided me with a solid base for designing strategic, new communications and effectively managing the implementation of new ideas. As well as creating within a Mac environment, pre-press, production and art direction are aspects of the graphic design field where I am at my best. Adobe Creative Suite is like second nature to me and I am able to take a project from concept to final print, quickly, efficiently and in an organized and cost effect manner.

    More than a decade in shameless self-promotion has honed my skills for exactly what you need. A film student in college I specialized at the time in screenwriting and video editing / sound design, quickly becoming the first choice editor for every “auteur filmmaker” who didn’t have the time to piece together her masterpiece. Editing for pizza, essentially, I wound up working as the head graphic/web designer for the university department of recreations. From small projects promoting intramurals to creating all media for the ACIS Flag Football National Championships it was my first real step into the fields of graphic design and branding. Instead of seeking professional work in the field after graduation I instead decided to fulfill a much less professional field known as stand-up comedy for the next decade. Stand-up comedy, a ruthless world of DIY self-promotion on a shoestring budget. Over the years I made use of the skills I entertained in college and put them to the test creating hundreds of gig posters, facebook announcements, registry-lapsed websites, and quickly abandoned podcasts. Every unique project and reinvention pushing me further than I was interested in and in less time than I probably needed. I’ve written sketch shows, punched up scripts, edited feature length films you’ve never heard of, and designed touring merch, cd and dvd inserts, fake chick tracts, newspaper stips, longterm partnership proposals for brand sponsors, business cards, and more postcard sized promotion handouts than I care to remember. My toolbox includes: Illustrator, Photoshop, Premiere, InDesign, Final Draft, Wordpress, Content Writing, and Soup-to-Nuts brand construction. Now that I’m off the road I have decided to put this experience to good use and to seek out content creators and small businesses who could benefit from my experience. More than just quick one offs though, I would ultimately like to build sustainable relationships with these clients as we grow together. I work quick. I’m not afraid to take risks. And above all else I want to make you happy with the work that I do. You deserve it.
