Emily Franklin

Who is Emily Franklin

I have been working as a graphic designer since 1997, mostly under the name of my own company Emdesign. In this time, I have worked as a fulltime employee, as freelancer and have been contracted on interim projects, which means that I have built up experience both inside and outside corporate organisations. At the same time, I have been studying and developing myself into a marketing project manager.
