SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY

Emma is a junior studying graphic design and finance. Her design experience started at The Daily Orange, the independent student newspaper. She worked as a print designer for three semesters before moving to digital design projects. Now, she is digital editor managing the strategy of all The D.O.’s digital products including website, social media, video and, most excitingly, the newly-launched Snapchat Publisher story. She’s also a virtual motion design intern for the U.S. Department of State with the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Emma loves collaboration and critique and when she’s not working on designing a new typeface or hanging out at The D.O., you can catch her working on her Fear Factor audition tape or assembling a charcuterie board.
