Branding - Marketing - Advertising
Welcome to my portfolio! I am a multi-media digital artist from Waltham, MA, with 7+ years experience.
During my time at RhythmOne, I produced hundreds of ads and mocked up just as many. These are some of my favorites.
I've been Photoshopping images since 2007. This one was from an Influencer campaign run by KFC with NFL star Richard Sherman. His pool was out of commission at the time, so we needed a fast solution for the ad. After seeing the doctored image, Mr. Sherman responded with, "Whoever did this should get a raise," and that felt good. Slide to see the "before" and click to view the full image.
In 2018, I dedicated my free time to a non-profit, volunteer-run organization called the Boston Teen Author Festival. With the direction of 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.

"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?!”
If you were a professor at Hogwarts, what course would you teach?
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 in the last four years. (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 are a way of life for me. I also love to write and sew. I have some published short stories and I make costumes in my free time. I love classic car shows, photography, grammar, and nature; I can identify all the types of turtles and birds of hometown, Ipswich, MA. I enjoy tea, travel and learning about the world, meeting new people. I'm a creative, introspective, and optimistic person who values compassion, logic, and good Scotch.
I went to school for Game Art & Animation because I dreampt of becoming an animator. I got to be an animator for three years, but now I'm hoping to bring my skills to a company that focuses on the environment: Green energy, renewable resources, sustainable living, habitat protection, pollution reduction, environmental education: These are all industries I want to join.
