Hi, Iโ€™m Emily.

I am a designer and photographer currently based in Norman, Oklahoma, where I am co-owner of Toast Design Studio. At Toast, we create branded identities and design solutions for passionate entrepreneurs and community-focused organizations. Our studio has won multiple district and regional ADDY awards for our work, and we work with clients spanning many different industries, including the OSU Museum of Art, Centennial Hospice, ComplyU, Produce Gal, Brookhaven Village Shopping Center, and The Treasury. My personal background is in design and art, with over 10 years of experience working at the Firehouse Art Center, a non-profit community art center, which has fueled my passion for visual arts education, non-profit administration, community development. I am one of NextGen Under 30โ€™s 2017 award-winners for Leadership & Contributions in the Arts, was a member of the Oklahoma Arts Council's Leadership Arts Class IX, and serve on the Oklahoma Arts Councilโ€™s major grants review panel.
