Welcome to my portfolio!
I'm a Creative Services professional with 7+ years of experience in rich media advertising, marketing, branding, graphic design for web and print, animation, and motion graphics across a range of industries. I value being dedicated to my work and coworkers, clear communication, flexibility, taking initiative, putting the client first, and giving back to my community. My strong emotional intelligence is an invaluable tool in my line of work, and my adaptability and passion for learning help me stay current in the ever-evolving world of visual design.
When I'm not on the job, I love to roller skate, write short works of weird fiction, sew clothes and costumes, and watch nature documentaries.
In 2018, I volunteered my time and talents to a non-profit, volunteer-run organization called the Boston Teen Author Festival. With direction from the BTAF president, I built a new brand identity from the ground up. I designed and helped produce a broad range of collateral, including enamel pins, mugs, flyers, banners, posters, t-shirts, book marks, and more. Click the logo to view a gallery BTAF designs.

"Emilie Rodgers is very creative, attentive to details and has a positive personality that is a strong asset when she works in teams."
“Emilie, I’ve said it before, you’re a damn professional. A total ace.”
“You’re a beacon of efficiency and capability.”
“Looks fantastic – you even got the reflection to be yellow! HOW ARE YOU SO MAGICAL?!”
Q: "Emilie. If you were a professor at Hogwarts, what course would you teach?"
A: "Photoshop." Contemplative pause. "Or divination, so I could drink all the tea."
If you use an ad blocker, there's a good chance you have not seen my work around the internet. (Spoilers: I use one, too.) But if you've scrolled this far, then you already know enough about my professional work, so let me tell you about me.
Clearly, I love art and design. I have a formal education in art, but creativity and curiosity have always been a way of life. I also love to write and sew. I have some published short stories and I make costumes and cute dresses in my free time. I love classic car shows, photography, scotch, science, grammar, and nature; I can identify all the types of turtles and birds of hometown, Ipswich, MA. I enjoy tea, travel, and other T-nouns like tophats, toast, and T-800. Yes, I'm a joker. I'm also a creative, introspective, and optimistic person who values compassion, logic, and loyalty.
Moving forward in my career, I'm hoping to join an industry or company that focuses on "The Greater Good", such as green energy, renewable resources, sustainability, combating pollution, or human rights issues like equality, education, or healthcare.
