With over 20 years in the graphic design business, Emily Christenson applies her clean design style and branding intuition to her clients’ businesses and causes. She loves making her clients look good, relishes challenging work, and knows that good design is crucial to success in the marketplace.
Emily got her start in the DC-area at Fannie Mae, a Fortune 500 financial institution. After several years as an in-house creative, she took her skills to a boutique branding agency where she sharpened her design eye and gained valuable knowledge about marketing and branding for a variety of organizations and industries. Her family’s adventurous spirit brought her to West Virginia and once again to the financial sector, where she oversaw marketing across various media and point-of-sale channels for a mid-sized credit union. In 2009, Emily started Paintbox Creative in order to feed her passion for creating beautiful and successful print and digital communications solutions for her association, non-profit, and corporate clients.
Emily has a B.A. in studio art and anthropology from the University of Virginia, and a M.A. in Publications Design from the University of Baltimore.
