Hello and thanks for visiting Fried Green Design! My name is Emily and I’m a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) with a BFA in Communication Design and the University of New Orleans with a Master’s in Arts Administration. I’m a graphic designer with a background in corporate advertising and marketing for a variety of firms. I’m in love with my trumpet-player husband, my cats and dog, and our amazing City of New Orleans. But I’m here – and so are you! – because I love making beautiful designs for beautiful folks!
I specialize in logo design and branding for small businesses and individuals, invitations and announcements of all kinds, thoughtfully and tastefully designed quirky art for your home (posters, especially) and anything else you might be able to dream up! Check out Fried Green Design on Etsy to see what I have for sale now, or contact me directly for custom pieces! Whenever possible, I use sustainable and/or recycled materials in my projects.
I’m social! I know you are too! Follow me and Fried Green Design! I’d love to connect with you all!
I have a diverse background of graphic design work, specializing in print media, identity design and branding. I attended Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) from 2000-2004 and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the School of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design (graphic design). I studied under some of the greatest professors a girl could hope to, including Sandra Wheeler, Benjamin Day, Philip Meggs, John Malinoski, Matt Woolman and Roy McKelvey. We were encouraged to think outside the proverbial box, involve our other interests in our design work and generally participate in the design process at all levels.
During college I interned with the National Park Service at the Design Center in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia where I had the opportunity to learn one of the best known graphic systems, while adding a bit of my own talent to the pool. I also interned with a printing company where I learned about the pre-press process, vital to any well-rounded print artist’s knowledge base. During my senior year in college, I had the opportunity to intern with Riggs Ward Design and work on a traveling exhibit for the National Library of Medicine, an exhibit for the anniversary of Brown vs. the Board of Education for the Black History Museum in Richmond, Virginia and several other projects. Immediately after college I worked with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in their print and publications department on all types of projects from license plate design to Virginia peanut packaging to annual reports. Currently, I am a freelance designer and Graphic Designer for the University of New Orleans. I often bring my advanced background in Marketing Management to the table for projects of all types – from small business branding all the way through branding your big wedding day!
