Emily is a fantastic person to work with on many levels. She is helpful, proactive, creative and thoughtful to name but a few. Emily put a lot of energy into the creation of our project brand and the resources which accompany it. We were very happy with the result and how it really represents the (fairly challenging) breadth of things we wanted to represent. Emily has always been reliable and it is a pleasure to continue to work with her on the project after over a year, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Emily, who is a delight to have on our team.
Ruth Farenga / Project Lead – People Like Me, The WISE Campaign
Working with Emily has been a real pleasure. She understood the concept of our publication straight away and brought her own ideas to the table to complement the style we wanted. She is always quick to respond to queries and has been extremely flexible with her time. The final publication was above and beyond what we expected and we look forward to working with her again on our next assignment!

I had the pleasure of working with Emily when I headed FAO’s Communication and Design Group in Rome. As a designer, Emily combines good taste, fresh ideas, technical competence, and the ability to respond to client needs. That said, she will also stand her ground when asked to make specific modifications that would spoil good design. During the year she worked with us, Emily developed all the visuals for a communication campaign on sustainable food systems. We sought and received permission from the Hundertwasser Foundation in Vienna to utilise one of the late artist’s paintings as the starting point. Emily helped us choose the most appropriate painting, and then developed posters, leaflets and several other products for the campaign. She managed to bring originality to the project, while remaining respectful to the Hundertwasser work.

Emily designed us a number of infographics, some technical and some for laypeople. She impressed everyone with her excellent attention to detail, speed of delivery, modern and clear style, and ability to understand what we needed and find a way to present it appealingly and intuitively. Reactions around the office have included ‘oh, has she sent it already?’, ‘she’s nailed it’, ‘we love Emily!’, and ‘I want to eat that graphic’.*

* Yes, my client really said this. I make graphics that look good enough to eat.
