With over twenty years experience working with fashion and beauty brands, Emily Wardwell is currently the Design Lead at Wardwell Design Studio, a boutique design studio founded in Brooklyn.

Emily started her design career as an editorial designer with the redesign of TeenVogue. She was the art director on the 2005 full redesign of the Almay brand staged by Revlon and spent the following year on photoshoots for Delia’s catalog. Shortly thereafter, Emily returned to Conde Nast to design in the art department for Vogue, Vogue Living, Fashion Rocks, Glamour and the series of coffee table books; Vogue Living: Houses, Gardens, People [Knopf, 2007], The World in Vogue: People, Places Parties [Knopf, 2009] and Extreme Beauty in Vogue [Skira, 2009].

Since 2010, the boutique design studio has specialized in visual storytelling for fashion, lifestyle and beauty brands along with the design of publications at both large and small publishing houses. Concurrently, Emily is a Part-time Assistant Professor teaching Communication Design and Printmaking via Silkscreen at Parsons The New School for Design. Her studio has since moved north of New York City to the scenic Hudson River Valley.
