You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

In 2004 I founded LimeRed Studio with a plan to prioritize high-quality design, user experience, and meaningful social impact.

My experience spans design, business development, user experience, writing, marketing, and strategy in both online and offline programs for multinational corporations, nonprofits, universities, boutique businesses, and prestigious consumer brands. LimeRed’s focus is creating stunning creative pieces for conscious businesses, nonprofits, foundations, and educational organizations to do work that makes people’s lives better.

She is a board member of MOM+BABY, member of Chicago's Small Business Advocacy Council, contributor to The Net Change - a resource directory for social enterprises, member of the Social Enterprise Alliance - Chicago’s program committee, member of Ms.Tech’s Executive Circle, and active in NTEN. She’s run accelerators for nonprofits and is a mentor for other women in business. She’s a published writer and teaches workshops on business development, information architecture, UX design, branding, and content strategy. Emily is also regular speaker and panelist at national and regional conferences.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I'm looking for a possible partner for my existing business who can either run the operations and marketing, or bring a book of business in the corporate space. I'm interested in hearing good ideas.
