Emma Sato

Branding & UX/UI

Often jaunty, always earnest, Emma’s love of emotion leads her to seek out the tender contradictions we all carry. She finds design’s rules reassuring but feels an equal thrill pursuing the unconventional. Emma learned the power of eye contact early and has been breaking the fourth wall ever since.
