Graduation with Distinction

Process-driven Graphic Designer and Writer

My desire to tell stories has been a through line in my life. As a journalism student, I was taught to examine every angle, ask questions that challenge my belief systems, and conduct research to support the right narrative. I apply a similar methodology to design, weaving together meaningful stories with captivating visuals. I balance research with emotion. I stay curious about what is possible, and I remain flexible in my approach and execution. I am not afraid to take risks—to fail, to start over—synthesizing visual narratives to uncover the most compelling solution. I am Emma, a graphic designer and writer. A Midwest transplant shaping narratives in the West.
