A picture of me

Emelyn Baker. Designer. Product person. Weirdo.

Hey, I'm Emelyn. I'm currently working on Product Design at Brit + Co.

Before that, I worked with Bloc, building the product design team as its first designer and, later on, its design lead.

I care a lot about design education, and write about it on Medium.

I'm pretty sewn-up on a full time role, but I'm accepting part-time freelance projects throughout the rest of 2016 and 2017.

Here's some professional work I've done
