Emily Thomas is a graphic designer who loves to work hard, solve problems, and stay curious.


Creative solutions are often the simplest ones. The ideas stripped to necessities. The clever take on the every day. Whether it's front-end development, identity design, visual narrative, or illustration, Emily's creative work reflects intentionality and authenticity. To her, visual communication is a critical tool in telling stories, building community, and impacting society. And she seeks opportunities to do just that. 

Emily is currently a designer/developer by day and illustrator by night, rocking and rolling in the midwest.
