Hello. I'm Emily Snow.

INTRODUCTION

 

To keep it simple, I'm Emily, I'm 22, and I'm in Providence, RI. I'm a graduate from Johnson and Wales with a Bachelor's in Graphic Design. I grew up in Upstate New York at the 'Gateway to the Adirondacks.' I come from a pretty rural background, but now I'm city living!

I've been drawing as long as I've been able to write, and I haven't really stopped. 

WORK EXPERIENCE

My latest graphic design work is at Providence City Hall working under the Mayor's Office. I work as the only designer, besides occasional temp hires and contracted design firms. Here, I design for print and digital with my projects varying from reports, flyers, brochures, logos, posters, social media post graphics, mass-emailing templates and so forth. We also occasionally print in-house, which leaves me in charge of printing and cutting materials. 

 

My most recent former design work was for a local business owner in Rhode Island for two of his businesses, a French restaurant and a historic walking trail. I primarily worked on website design and mass-emailing, but I also got to work with print media such as invitations, signs and other small design. Before then I had worked remotely for Sade Bowen: Public Relations Firm based in New York City. Through Sade, I created album covers for Sunny Picasso. Through his projects, I've used a variety of techniques from image rendering, to typography, to illustration.

Through Johnson & Wales, I did work for a couple non-profit organizations, the Rhode Island Food Bank, Blue Door Art Studio, and House of Hope. I did print work for both RI Food Bank and Blue Door Art Studio which were both used by the organizations. I created a slide deck for House of Hope.

In high school, I did a series of posters for the Trevor Project, a suicide awareness organization. I also did design work for the school, including a year book cover, calendar cover, and many posters.

EDUCATION

Before Johnson & Wales University, I graduated from Broadalbin-Perth High School in 2015. At 13 out of 130 in my class, I graduated with a 3.85 GPA. I had gone to this school for my entire general education. 

In my junior and senior years of high school, I also went to HFM BOCES Career & Technical Center, a type of vocational school. I studied Digital Multimedia, which included photography, videography and graphic design. I learned much of my knowledge about the Adobe Suite here.
