What's my story?
Emily Thompson is a Seattle area based graphic designer and producer.
Emily attended the University of Georgia, earning a BA degree in Graphic Design. Her aesthetic has a penchant for timelessness and simplicity. She has been trained to approach sales and marketing strategy through the methods of storytelling, and believes heartily in just about anything Simon Sinek has to say.
After college and a stint in the corporate design world, she started her own venture as a small business owner taking after her father’s lifelong talent of woodworking. With this medium she married her love for food and home by crafting intentionally designed objects that functioned as utilitarian art. Her love for line and form grew during this time, as well as her ability to manage the many facets of a business.
While working on Board & Bread, she was invited to join the small but rapidly flourishing team at the Nashville-based women’s clothing company, Elizabeth Suzann. During her time with the company she has helped build many of the foundational systems that the operations of the business still rely on today. Additionally, she managed and created all of the company’s digital and print collateral, email-marketing, and brand assets. Her detail-oriented nature and proclivity for organization also afforded her the opportunity to co-produce photo shoots and editorial campaigns both in Nashville and across the country, as well ring-lead the largest sample sale event Elizabeth Suzann has hosted to date.
After a wonderful number of years in Nashville, Emily and her husband (portrait photographer Chris Daniels) set their sights on the West Coast. Taking her experience with her she joined the Local Milk Team, ring lead by Beth Kirby, and is now lead graphic designer for Beth’s brands, producer of her kickass creative business podcast Raw Milk, and has her sights set on even more for 2019 with the growing company.
When Emily isn’t tip tapping away on her laptop for work, you can find her snuggled up with her fur babies and cookbooks, or taking a walk around the beautiful forests of the Northwest.
A few of my goals for 2018.
| Art direct and design a cookbook.
| Work with a restaurant I believe in to create their brand identity, menus, and marketing strategy.
