About me
I am an ambitious multidisciplinary graphic designer, based in London. I have a particular interest in typography and image making, creating bold, impactful designs. I’m focused on creating thought provoking work which captures an audience’s attention. I have always had a love of the design process and enjoy manipulating both type and image so they become more accessible to an audience. Through my degree and internships, I have gained valuable experience in working in different disciplines including editorial, motion graphics, campaign work and branding. I am confident in digital work and have skills using Adobe Creative Cloud; specifically, InDesign, Photoshop, After Effects, Adobe XD and Illustrator. Other skills I have developed include screen printing and letterpress. I also have a love of photography, film and video editing, in particular capturing environments, cultures and daily life, which I like to use in my creative work and projects. In summer 2019 I was awarded membership to the International Society of Typographic Designers for my publication ‘The Strongest Link’. Following my graduation in Autumn 2019, I spent three months travelling across Australia. It was a great trip which allowed me to grow personally whilst experiencing a new culture. emmagraydesign.com

The imagery in the pulication is my own photography and the quotes are from people I talked to when visiting the lane asking of their stories, experiences and memories of Brick Lane.

  • Judgements
    JudgementsMy extended study project is on judgements in our society and whether the society we live in today has become to judgemental. My work is to make people more aware of the judgements they make and the impacts these have on others lives. I feel as a society we are becoming more judgemental and this is having a negative impact on peoples wellbeing, mental health and the way we interact with others.
