The studio of Emma Philip specialises in branding and publication design led by curiosity and care. Based in Lisbon, Emma collaborates closely with a wide network of friends and talent worldwide depending on the needs of each project. Together, we aim to establish connected and often long-lasting relationships with clients, choosing to work with companies who are conscious of the impact they leave on people and the planet. We specialise in meaningful branding and editorial design for arts and culture, education and non-profit organisations and like to work with people who see themselves a little differently.




Our approach

We take time to wholly understand your brand so we can discern the truest way to say what you need to. Inspired and motivated to build a world that invites your audience in, we believe the best design is accessible but always unexpected. We’re happiest making work that’s playful, approachable and deeply thoughtful.
