Hi, my name is Emily and I love letters.

Sure, I was one of those kids that always loved to draw, and would get excited when school assignments included illustration of some kind (still am!). But I also insisted that my parents buy me a how-to calligraphy book that came with broad-nib pens, and I would endlessly doodle variations on logo designs for my favorite bands in my sketchbooks. Later on, I taught myself calligraphy and brush lettering and my full-on love affair with custom lettering began.

I earned an MFA in Illustration from the Academy of Art in San Francisco. When I'm not buried in a pile of papers and brush pens at my desk (you think I'm kidding), I like to sew and bake - because who doesn't love new clothes and tasty treats? That and pretty much any other hobby that involves making things. I also love dogs. Like, more than humans sometimes. But seriously:

My goal is to work with you to create something distinctive and personalized that will enhance your brand, improve your business, and create great experiences for your people.
