Emma Hursey is a creative director and graphic designer. Spliting her time between surf and sun in Australia’s Rainbow Beach, meandering the streets of London, & late night cycles between friendships in Berlin.


Emma Hursey is a creative director and graphic designer based in Rainbow Beach, Australia.

        Emma works in the fields of culture, fashion and art – translating her surprising approach to form and colour across branding, typography, packaging, product, website, space and illustration.

        With a decade in the field of design, Emma began working independently in 2017. In 2022 she founded the design studio Doing Me Doing You︎︎︎. Working on visual identities internationally between Australia’s Rainbow Beach, Berlin and her native London.

        In 2017, Emma exhibited The Cost of the Patriarchy at the V&A Museum’s Friday Late. The work looked at the ebbs and flows of women’s rights throughout history. In 2018, she showed a research project Contrary to What is Agreeable at The Wømb Symposium – a zine and poster exhibition exploring diversity in the UK’s creative sector. In 2019, she was a founding member of the design collective The Boys Club Berlin︎︎︎ hosting events for the likes of AIGA Eye on Design, Ladies, Wine and Design and notamuse.
