Hello. I'm Emily Snow.
I'm a 24 year-old virgo, cat lady and art enthusiast. I've just relocated back to Upstate New York. I'm a graduate of Johnson & Wales University with a Bachelor's in Graphic Design. I grew up in rural Upstate New York in the county nicknamed the 'Gateway to the Adirondacks.' I moved to Providence for college and ended up staying for five years. My focuses are in illustration and print design, but I have strengths across the board.
I've been drawing as long as I've been able to write, and I haven't really stopped.
My latest graphic design work is at Providence City Hall working under the Mayor's Office. In my role as the sole graphic designer, I design for print and digital with my projects varying from reports, flyers, brochures, infographics, posters, branding, social media post graphics, mass-emailing templates and so forth. We often printed in-house(pre-COVID), which left me in charge of printing and cutting material anywhere between 1 hard copy or 500 copies. Post-COVID, I've worked with local print shops and keeping other in-house printing minimal.
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 I've been designing based in Providence, 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 and 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 a graphic design internship for my school over the summer which included a year book cover, calendar cover and posters. These posters are still in use today(as of 12/2020), though now with 6+ years of graphic design experience now under my belt, I have much to critique.
I graduated Johnson & Wales University in February of 2019 with my Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design, a 3.4 GPA and recognition in my overall improvement and leadership skills.
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 the entirety of my 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 most of my basic knowledge of the Adobe Suite during these years.

Travel, particularly hiking and nature walks. During summer in Providence, you might see me cruising the neighborhoods on a bike! I also would like to travel as much of the world I can— when I can.
Video Games. I haven't had much of the chance to game recently, due to the fact that I'm a young professional starting my career, but I do PC game.
Art. It's mostly drawing and graphic design, but my artistry includes anything from photography to bracelets, dream catchers, paintings, costumes and to props. I rather be caught dead than without my sketchbook. I also love interior design, which this love stemmed from my days playing The Sims. My apartment is my ever-evolving large-scale art project.
Tv & Movies. Some of my favorite movies are Across the Universe, Mr Nobody and the SAW series. Any Ghibli film easily can make it to my favorites list. Some of my favorite TV include The Office, The Good Place, Steven Universe, Orange is the New Black, Umbrella Academy, and The Marvelous Mrs.Maisel.
Social Media. Social media is essential to my professional and personal life— using it for leisure, to share my work, and to search for inspiration. I'm also a big fan of memes.
If you're curious on where upstate, I'm from a little town in off of the Sacandaga Lake. It's 25 minutes west of Saratoga Springs, and 45 minutes north of Albany.
I'm 100% a cat person. I've lived with cats all my life, but I'm currently the fur mom to one kitty.
