Profile

Emma Hursey is an independent designer from the UK. She combines graphic design with illustration, art direction & custom type to create eclectic visual communications. Her current hobbies include jewellery making, woodworking, and swimming in the ocean once a day.


Having studied fashion and culture journalism, Emma turned her communication skills to visual design. Moving to Berlin in 2016, she joined Olafur Eliasson's Little Sun project as their graphic designer. In Summer of 2017 she went solo, kicking off her independent design practice. Emma exhibited The Cost of the Patriarchy at the V&A Friday Late in 2017, then exhibited and published Contrary to What is Agreeable, a multidisciplinary work which studied diversity in the creative industries at The Wømb Symposium in 2018. She joined 5 other designers in forming The Boys Club in 2019 – a design collective working and collaborating from their studio in Berlin. Together they hosted community events for the likes of AIGA Eye on Design, Ladies Wine & Design, Notamuse, as well as exhibiting work as part of 48h Neukölln and The Wømb Symposium.

The infamous year of 2020 saw Emma recently relocated to Rainbow Beach, Australia where she tackled the pitfalls of the pandemic, continued to collaborate with clients around the world and delved into new & better ways to create – with a particular focus on website and motion design. 

Emma is currently open for new opportunities, new projects and new collaborations. Her work is ever focussed on community, and she's passionate about connecting with people, brands, thinkers and designers from all over. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with your concepts, commissions, press enquiries and any questions you might have. Emma curates a digital selection of design resources (currently closed for renovations) and an online reading list called Good Book Catalogue.




Currently based in Queensland, Australia, on the traditional lands of the Gubbi Gubbi and Butchulla people. I pay my respects to the traditional custodians of the land and sea, the ancestors and elders—past, present and future. They are amongst the oldest living cultures in the world. Sovereignty was never ceded. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
