This is me: designer, illustrator, creative thinker by day & master tea blender by night.

When you catch yourself drawing instead of doing everything on your “to-do” list, you start to wonder – maybe I should just do this, for real. Well here’s me, doing this for real. I started freelancing in 2012, with varied opportunities from pen & ink species sketches for a dissertation, illuminations for a volume of poetry, and character designs for a hypothetical video game.

Since then, I’ve used my classical training in illustration and my background in digital design to apply myself to startups and big companies. With startups I work more on logo designs and branding, launching social media campaigns, and studying analytics. With tried and true companies, it’s about designing in-brand packaging and supporting sales teams. I’ve worked across Mac and PC,  with Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, and dabbled in WordPress and HTML.

I’ve had my hand in branding, illustration, design, packaging, writing, and oodles of doodling!

GAA Franklin Award for Excellence, 2016

(click the award to see the catalog!)

Awarded to the Nanacoco 2016 Catalog, which was done under Emyliane’s art direction, with her layout, type, and graphic design, as well as a spread featuring her illustrations. The catalog was entered under Paradigm Digital Color Graphics.

“The competition, sponsored by the Graphic Arts Association in Philadelphia, is one of the nation’s largest regional graphic communications contests in which graphic arts, packaging, converting, design and publishing excellence is selected and showcased. Judging occurred over several teams who examined the finished product as well as how the job was performed. The number of colors, press size and printing process determine winners for overall design, successful completion, pre-press preparation and finishing.”

What I Do

Design

I spend my days as a designer and producer for Crayola, telling the brand story from first click to falling in love. Over the years, I’ve had my hands on over 1000 SKUs, 12 catalogues, and 5 websites. Typography has a special fascination for me and color is an absolute obsession.

Illustration

Cats, fairies, streetscapes oh my! I relish every opportunity to illustrate – no matter the project, pen to paper is paramount. From absentminded doodles of eyes to freelance projects designing video game characters, no project is insurmountable with enough communication and coffee!

Copywriting

A storyteller at heart, I’ve been writing for fun and business nearly as long as I’ve been drawing. From copy on packages, editing thesis papers, and writing short stories and advertising blurbs, I’ve written and advised on text for companies and friends.
