Emma is Cooper’s Director of Product Design. She’s a stickler for quality and a hopeless optimist; she gets really excited when faced with a new challenge. Emma has spent her career finding ways to uncover what’s meaningful and translate it to design, and she loves helping others do the same. 

Emma’s work at Cooper spans strategy, interaction design, and visual design. She shares her knowledge through Cooper Professional Education, leading workshops and custom training. Internally, Emma contributes to practice direction, project leadership, mentorship, brand positioning, business development, and endless whiteboard doodles. 

Emma brings to the table a degree in Philosophy from Wesleyan, an MFA in Graphic Design from Maryland Institute College of Art, and more than a decade of industry experience. When not at Cooper, she serves as Creative Director for City+County Bicycle Co. and takes time to read, paint, snack, and relax in nature.
