We reached out to Emily for a high-impact, tight-deadline logo revamp, and she hit the ground running. Emily’s innate sensibilities for what would and would not work for our project were invaluable. She worked with us daily as we approached our deadline until she delivered a final logo that exceeded our expectations in every way. My only hesitation in recommending her your next project is that it might mean she would be unavailable for mine! She’s Nashville’s best-kept-secret.
You are professional (way more than I am), you work fast, and you have a killer creative eye. You make my businesses look legit! You have a great ability to almost read my mind and pick designs that look incredible with very little input from me. I'm currently sitting at 63 YouTube sponsors thanks to your "Mattmojis" chat emojis and beard sponsor badges! It's going up around 20 per month. I just recommended you yesterday because good talent is hard to find!
From the first design assignment I knew we had a winner. Emily goes out of her way to not only ensure we have the result we expect in paper, but also in the experience and branding that the company as a whole provides. From the small details in typography and the feeling each font conveys to making sure a design aligns with the experience we want to convey to our customers. Even when it's artwork that she doesn't make, she keeps an eye out out for us with advice and suggestions that can help the company as a whole, because she sees the big picture in working with her clients. She's not just a graphic designer, she's a helping hand just as much as any of our other employees to better the company as a whole, not just our graphics. She takes in our motto and vision and submerges herself in our culture when creating products for us. She really takes freelance to a whole new and more involved level that I haven't seen with any other freelancer that we've worked with.
Working with Emily was an absolute delight. As a small business owner I work with many freelancers and to find one with a great personality, incredible design, AND great business integrity is almost impossible to find. I found them all with Emily.
Emily is an amazing illustrator and is exceptionally sharp. I hired her to turn jargon-y lectures from CEOs into creative and fun sketchnotes that would be accessible to a general audience. She brilliantly captured the essence of these lectures in head-turning sketchnotes every single time, despite me providing very little direction. Her illustrations would stop people in their tracks in our lobby, which is exactly what I wanted! She's fun to work with and I'd hire her again in a heartbeat.
Emily Carlton is awesome! We've loved having her represent The Sketch Effect to our Nashville-area clients and they couldn't be happier with her work. Not only is she a talented illustrator, designer, and sketch artist, but she's also a great person and a pleasure to work with--a rare commodity in today's marketplace. Hire Emily--you won't regret it!
I would recommend (and have recommended…many times) Emily to anyone seeking illustration, design or anything creative, really. She’s a breeze to work with, extremely professional, clear and upfront. We (Film Lab Creative) used emily on a few different projects. We delivered a script and a concept and had her brainstorm specific scenes/characters/images that correspond with a voiceover. Us and our client were blown away with what we got. We’d hire her again in a heartbeat. Plus, she’s a great hang and can make about anyone laugh.
