Bred in the South, born for the West, Emily relocated to Boulder, Colorado after earning her BFA in Graphic Design in 2014. She believes that design can hold greater capacity than "communication" or even "problem-solving" (both integral but maybe a bit simplistic). Design can reach deeper and aim higher: it can delight, enlighten and inspire.


In the most mundane settings or unexpected places, design can share a story. It can bring beauty to the commonplace or it can expose beauty unseen.
