Talk: Design it Forward or Because, Because, Because, Because.

Emily is a multidisciplinary designer whose work encompasses brand identity, motion graphics, publications, packaging, advertising, websites and strategy. Emily’s work is unique in that it blurs the line between promotion and design—often using language and humor to make an emotional connection. Emily’s work has been recognized by the AIGA, Communication Arts, the Type Directors Club and the Art Directors Club, among others. In 2016 she was chosen by Fast Company as one of the year’s 100 most creative people in business.

Emily’s clients include NBC Universal (including brand identities for 30 Rock, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and Saturday Night Live, for whom she has done the opening title sequence for 19 years, as well as a 40th anniversary coffee table book). Recent projects include strategy and branding for DC Entertainment, Film Independent; Independent Spirit Awards show packaging; branding for the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA); opening sequences for Tina Fey’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and identities for JK Rowling’s film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and for the upcoming Justice League Film.
