Skills

My friends call me Wonder Woman. (That’s actually not true.) But while I don’t have super strength or a particular interest in fighting evil, I do have a some skills.

Print & Package Design

Brochures, business cards, book covers, billboards, boxes, and bottles. Whatever it is, I create innovative designs that make an impression.

Identity & Branding

A brand isn’t a logo. A brand is a gut feeling about a company, business, or product. I enjoy putting all my skills to work to craft that gut feeling.

Photography

I have over ten years of experience behind the lens. I’m comfortable shooting people, places, and things with my Canon 7D.

Mobile & Web Design

I know CSS, HTML, Bootstrap, WordPress.org, Hype animation, iBooks, jQuery Mobile, information architecture, and user testing.

Copywriting & Advertising

I write and edit high-quality content, as well as create “big ideas” to engage audiences. No concept too big, no surface too small.

Video & Motion

I’m trained to capture video using lights and sound. I use Final Cut Pro, After Effects, and Logic Pro X to deliver a polished final product.

People ignore design that ignores people.

Portfolio

I like combining texture, color, and intriguing typography to create a tangible feel that bridges the gap between the digital world and the physical world. Here's some of my work.

About

emily kunz

I’ve been drinking the visual communications kool-aid since I completed my undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University-Idaho in 2008. I got my first “big-kid” job working as a graphic designer for a playground company in Utah. In 2009, I moved to the Baltimore-Washington, where I worked as both an in-house designer and a freelancer. I attended the University of Baltimore as an MFA student in the integrated design program. While there, I was a graduate assistant at the Digital Design Studio and a graduate teaching assistant. I’m all-but-thesis with a set graduation date of Spring 2016.
I currently live in Davis, California and work as a graphic designer for the University of California Davis’ Western Institute for Food Safety and Security. I also teach visual communications to online web design and development students at BYU-Idaho. Other insignificant but possibly intriguing things about me: My heroes are David Ogilvy and Rosie the Riveter (yes, I know she’s fictional). My position in life as the youngest of nine children was and is the sole cause of my creativity today. I have dreams of learning to tap dance. And I love to write, advertise, organize, photograph, and, of course, graphic design.
