Born in Northern Virginia and raised in the Philadelphia area, Emily has been creative since she was a toddler. She headed back south a few years ago to complete her BFA in graphic design at The Savannah College of Art and Design. With her love of the scrapbook industry and also fabric, she ventured in her own direction on developing surface design skills that would complement her traditional design training.

With a vast amount of experience from freelancing for national brands, working in advertising and also for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Emily has tackled various industries that demand design. Corporate branding and marketing, custom invitations, and surface designing for gift and craft companies, are some of the design markets she excels in.

Weekends are spent researching at major retailers with their latest collections, reading publications and blog hopping to stay current in the design world. Emily prides herself on being knowledgeable on the latest in design trends including color, typography, composition, and design aesthetic. From textile patterns to office supplies, there is always an opportunity to gather inspiration. 

A self-obsessed stationery lover, time is often spent learning about the latest releases and small companies all over the country staying true to their craft.
