About me

Award-winning visual & information designer from London, obsessed with problem-solving through design and story-telling with data. Emily strives to produce engaging and accessible solutions across digital and print (adding a little playfulness if appropriate!). She has eight years’ experience working closely with clients from various backgrounds and industries, answering their business objectives through design and illustration while keeping users at the centre of the process. Before pursuing a career in freelance, Emily spent two years as an Editorial UX Designer for BBC News where she designed interactive features for key events such as the 2015 General Election and led a major project to redesign the BBC's visual style for responsive infographics and data visualisations. In her free time, Emily is developing an interactive learning platform for primary-age children, which focuses less on curriculum-orientated learning and more on their development and empowerment. She is also an avid collector of folk toys from her travels around the world and has started to try her hand at wood carving.
