EM_Headshot_2022.jpg

I'm Emily Bertram.

Howdy,

I'm a multifaceted creative director specializing in user-centered design systems, integrated campaigns, and interactive experiences across emerging platforms. I believe the strongest ideas are backed by strategy and data, and I approach every project with passion to champion intuitive creative solutions. 

Within my teams, I strive to lead with empathy, work collaboratively, and build lasting relationships.

When I'm not in the middle of a staring contest with my computer, you can either find me devouring a mystery novel, tearing up an indoor volleyball court, or on a patio eating queso and drinking a spicy marg.
