Emily Oberman is an award winning multidisciplinary designer whose work encompasses strategy, brand identity, motion graphics, publications, packaging, advertising, and websites.

Rowling’s Fantastic, Ready Player One, League of Legends, Leafs by Snoop / Pounds (Snoop Dogg’s line of cannabis and cannabis products), and The Wing, a social space created to serve and empower a diverse community of those who identify as women.
Born in Yonkers, Emily studied at The Cooper Union. She then joined the legendary design studio M&Co., working with Tibor Kalman. Before joining Pentagram, Emily and Bonnie Siegler cofounded Number Seventeen in 1993.
