Emily Oberman


Emily Oberman is a multidisciplinary designer whose work encompasses brand identity, motion graphics, publications, packaging, advertising, and websites. A native of Yonkers, New York, Emily studied design and filmmaking at the Cooper Union School of Art in New York City. In 2016, she was chosen by Fast Company as one of the year’s 100 most creative people in business.

Emily’s work is unique in that it blurs the line between promotion and design—often using language and humor to make an emotional connection. Her clients have included Benetton and NBC Universal. Recent projects include strategy and branding for DC Entertainment; strategy and branding for Film Independent as well as show packaging for the Film Independent Spirit Awards; strategy and branding for the luxury resort Le Guanahani as well as the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (Mia) and branding and opening sequences for Tina Fey’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
