Hey there, I’m Emily a Designer and Front-end Developer currently working at Mixd. I like to get my creative on by designing anything from eye-catching websites to illustrations and icons, all while secretly wishing I was still living in the 90's. I’ve been working in the industry for three years and I enjoy sharing my experiences in design, both to students and my fellow web heads.
I've worked on a few things...
Rossett Acre Primary School
Mixd were tasked with creating a responsive Wordpress website for Harrogate based Primary School, Rossett Acre. The aim was to bring their school website up to date and create a mobile friendly experience, I also took this chance to brighten their brand by creating a fresher colour palette.View the site
Spoke are a London based creative and communications agency. When Spoke came to Mixd they were a start-up aiming to create a brand for themselves. This was a great opportunity to work with like minded creatives who were as enthusiastic about design as I am.View the site
SB Ski are a ski company based in the Alps, they specialise in catered ski holidays through Summer and Winter months. SB Ski wanted help to revitalise their brand and build one website that combined both their Winter and Summer website.View the site
I've had some fun speaking opportunities...
Developer's of habit
I was lucky enough to be asked to speak at Hey!'s first event of 2017, I discussed my creative process and the bad habits I've replaced with good ones over the years.View the slides and video
Team Roles lecture
With Mixd I've had the opportunity to give lectures at some of the UK's fantastic Universities, I've given this lecture to Undergraduate and Postgraduate students at Leeds and Teeside University.
Confessions of a first year web dev
My first speaking event saw me pretty much pouring my heart out to a room full of creatives and techies. I touched on issues such as imposter syndrome and finding your place in a large pond.View the slides
