Hello, I’m Emma, the founder & head designer at Bespoke Backdrops & Branding.
I truly have the best job in the world; creating strong and unique brand identities and custom video backdrops for amazing clients worldwide.
My 20 year career as an artist and designer spans both Europe and Australia. I grew up in England, graduated in London with a BA(hons) in Fashion & Textiles, before working in fashion PR and publishing. In 1997, I moved to Switzerland, where I ran a small art studio, and exhibited both in Geneva and London.
Today I live in Sydney with my husband and a grumpy cat. Our 2 adult children have moved out & attend university.
For me, art, design & business go hand in hand – I blend them together not just for my own business, but for my clients too. Great design helps you sell your products and services.
My entrepreneurial journey has opened doors and afforded me some incredible opportunities, including a stint in Silicon Valley and serving as a mentor for The Branson Centre for Entrepreneurship.
I’ve been nominated and won awards, have spoken at conferences & events internationally and have been interviewed on various podcasts.
I am a mentor and guest expert for various business schools and programs globally, helping early-stage businesses grow and thrive.
I recently launched my own mentorship program for creative entrepreneurs called The Bespoke Business Hub.
As a life-long learner, I am always upskilling and am part of The Brand Design Masters Guild run by Philip Vandusen.
I bring all of my 20 years business experience into my design work. I understand the power of good design and visual resonance; connecting on an emotional level is as important as connecting on an intellectual level. After all, 93% of communication in non-verbal.
