Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do.
My name is Emma and I’m originally from country Victoria. I moved to Melbourne for university when I was 18 and never left. I’m a Graphic Designer working in the entertainment industry and like to dabble in photography in my spare time
Describe your creative practice
I’m probably too reliant on my mac truth be told, I really need to push myself to get out the sketch pad and brainstorm ideas – it’s my yearly resolution.
How did you get into Graphic Design?
I originally studied film and photography at university and after a few years of odd jobs decided to return to study. I was very lucky to get work prior to finishing and have been a practising graphic designer ever since. It’s a tough industry so I’m lucky to be a part of it.
Tell us about your past projects. What has been your most treasured creation?
I think I’m still to create it.
Where did you grow up and has it influenced what you create?
I grew in Shepparton and I’ve explored the themes of my youth in my previous work.
What is your current project?
I have a couple of ideas that are a simmering, just need to bring them to the boil.
Who or what was your inspiration?
I like checking out the work of designers that I admire but mostly I get inspiration from seeing a film, watching a documentary, visiting an art gallery or trawling the internet for cat memes.
Where do you feel most creative?
Right before I nod off to sleep, that final lucid moment before falling asleep is a creative goldmine!
