An analytical observer and thoughtful listener, Emily takes great care in recognizing people’s needs and bringing them to life through design. She draws upon her knowledge of art history, architecture, and gallery work to inform her creative approach at Thinkso. As a result, she’s able to communicate clients’ esoteric ideas through clear and compelling design concepts.
Prior to joining Thinkso, Emily created social media graphics and printed fundraising materials as a designer at Human Agency. Before that, she was the director of operations at Smile Design Gallery, a nonprofit art gallery providing free dental care to New Yorkers in need. She began her career as an administrative manager at Matiz Architecture and Design.
Emily earned her MFA in design from the School of Visual Arts — where she won the school’s prestigious Silas Rhodes Award — and her BA in art history from Tufts University. She also completed course work in graphic design, logo and branding design, and children’s illustration at Pratt’s School of Continuing Studies. In her spare time, Emily loves to run and cook to boost her creative thinking. She lives in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood with her boyfriend and two squirrels who decided to move into her firescape. (They are both named Terry.)
