¡Hola! Bonjour! مرحبا

Hello and welcome!


Thanks for wanting to learn more about me! My name is Emily Nadira and I'm an artist living in Portland, Oregon! “Artist” to me encompasses not only the fine art I do, but also the graphic and motion designs I create. I do some other things too, like yoga, cat cuddling, cider drinking, traveling and aerial acrobatics! Thank you for stopping by my corner of the world wide web.

I'm a very goofy human being. I feel like this industry I'm in can get very serious and cut-throat, at times. So, I try to be as light-hearted as I can be about it. I want to collaborate with other designers and artists as much as possible and create a community rather than a competition. 

So, maybe you're someone that needs the services I can provide, or maybe you're another creative that wants to collaborate, or maybe you just want to talk about cats. Whoever you are, feel free to contact me and we'll see what happens!

What Others Say About Me…


“Emily is a rare and enviable combo, possessing a fiery creative mind, a tenacious work ethic, and a clear and refreshingly direct communication style. Add her ease with, and enthusiasm for, collaboration, and she's frankly all any creative can hope for when engaging a visual storyteller. She brought a bright energy and sharp creative perspective to each project I've been fortunate enough to work with her on.”

Joel Pomeroy, Executive Creative Director, Funnelbox

“Emily is a humble and hungry creative. She’s passionate about her work, and a lovely, positive, kind person to work with. She consistently wows me with her work ethic, adaptability, and problem solving skills. I recommend her to all my colleagues and friends looking for graphic design or motion graphics. Hire her!”

Kelly Wilcox, Art Director, The Stacks

“I have worked with Emily when she begun her career as an intern, and later moved into a production role. She has a great set of diverse skills, so she can jump into any type of project and be successful. Her flexibility and her enthusiasm, along with her contribution to the ideating process impressed me since the first day we started working together. Emily is also great with people. She is kind and empathetic, interesting and funny - an absolutely awesome person to work with.”

Anca Budisan, Digital Experience Designer, Daimler

"Emily is fantastic! When we tapped her for our logo design, she met with us and asked the kind of insightful questions that really got to the heart of what our new company was about. From that conversation, she came up with a unique logo that perfectly communicated our company's essence. Emily not only has creative design skills, but also a positive attitude that makes her a joy to work with."

Robin Vada, Executive Producer, Adventuress Films
