Founder of Studio Emmi
Everything Emmi does is underpinned by a simple but powerful idea: Positive Creativity.
From the creative process to the final output, she believes design can bring people together, create sustainable choices and foster wellbeing. She set up Studio Emmi in 2005 to partner with clients and creatives who want to make a positive contribution to society and planet. Emmi is a graphic designer, creative director and accredited Happiness Facilitator. She regularly gives talks and workshops about Creative Ecosystem, a model she has created guiding creatives in their wellbeing and careers. Born in Finland, Emmi studied graphic design in the UK at the University of Brighton. In 2001, she moved to northern Italy to work at Fabrica, Benetton Group’s prestigious communication research studio for young designers. She then worked at Karlssonwilker in New York, and Futerra sustainability agency as their UK Creative Director. She is the author of the book Common Interest: Documents and the Domestika course, Sustainable Visual Identities: Create Positive Impact.
