Expert Visual & Written Storyteller

Why hello there! I’m Emily Cate and it’s nice to meet you.

I’ve been writing and making art from the moment I could hold a crayon in my hand. This obsession with storytelling has defined both my education and professional career.

From the newspapers I designed on Microsoft Office Published and distributed at family parties to creating innovative multimedia campaigns for growing brands, I have always been interested in telling a compelling story and telling it well. These stories have taken on many forms, from spoken word pieces at slam poetry nights and long-form journalism to clever social media graphics and video stories that captivate.

But regardless of form, the function remains – I am fascinated by small details and engaged in the big picture, looking for what sets this story apart. I love taking a big concept and figuring out the why – why it matters and why people should care.

My training in journalism equips me to quickly communicate ideas and coordinate team efforts for a flawless result on a deadline. Essentially, I am very good at herding cats and checking off every item on my “to do” list.

A propensity for whiling away hours at the closet art museum or gallery, and a desire to learn as much as possible about art, design and editing, have given me a keen eye for telling your story in an engaging way off the written page, whether that’s designing clickable ads or conceptualizing multimedia campaigns.

In short, I have the expertise and ambition to take your big idea to the next level. Seeking someone with a track record of exceeding expectations and enriching company content? Sounds like we should collaborate.
