Hello world! As you know we have amazing talent in our team. In this post I wanted to do an informal, behind-the-scenes interview with our designer Emily. I'm sure you all have read her posts in our blog before. She is a super talented and extremely full of energy. She is been working with us for three years, doing all kinds of everything. Her designs range pre-k to middle grade; you name it, she is done it.
Emily has a passion for patterns, colors, and most of all, she is a book fanatic. =)
Here are some things I thought you would be interested in knowing about her. Know the people behind the books I always say. Here is your chance!
Emily, tell us what is your favorite book everybody needs to read and why?
"Do I have to pick just one?! Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, I love the complexity of the story, and the issues that are brought forth in the novel. Eugenides is a master at creating a sense of time and place."
What is your favorite book you have ever designed?
"Katie Woo, just because I was so involved in the development of her character. From the color of her glasses, to picking out the specific clothes that she should wear. It was a dream project! "
What is your favorite color?
What is your favorite food?
What is your favorite cartoon?
" I don’t really watch cartoons, but I do enjoy animated movies, especially anything by Hayao Miyazaki. Kiki’s Delivery Service is a favorite."
What is you love about your job?
"I was a huge book nerd growing up (still am!) so designing books as a job is pretty sweet. I can only hope that the books I help create will spark another child’s lifelong love of reading."
I asked Emily for picture of her. What did I get in my email instead? A super-duper cute picture of her cat Eva wearing a sweater! Too cute.
I'll leave you in Eva's good company. Have a wonderful weekend, blogosphere!
