Emily Tate is a
Creative Director
and Art Director
in Portland, OR

I care (a lot) about people, process and creating really good work.

I like working with emerging technologies, and finding ways to make them essential to an experience, not just a novelty.

I am curious. I love exploring hard to answer questions and finding creative opportunities and approaches to new and unexpected challenges.

I love to set up and form stories that must be written not by the individual, but by the collective - through communities, technology and shared experiences.

I believe good work is beautiful, but great work is meaningful.




I had the absolute pleasure of working with Emily during her time as Associate Creative Director at Happylucky. During that time I saw her manage teams of creatives across three offices, while juggle multiple national campaigns, events, and activations. She approaches everything she does with curiosity and heart. She is a high-level conceptual thinker while also understanding the importance of perfection in every detail. As a manager she truly cares for her team, their personal growth and their success.

I worked with Emily Tate on a handful of projects over the span of a year. In that time I was always taken with her well-balanced sense of thoughtfulness and confidence. I find both of these qualities to be very powerful in a leader and it was always heartening and inspiring to connect with her. I would highly recommend her as she is a sure-fire asset to any brand or company looking to identify and strengthen a creative vision.

I worked with Emily for over a year on a range of marketing efforts from campaign rollouts, to experiential, to social-only campaigns. Emily is the type of leader and manager who fights for, and believes in, morale. She is willing to ask questions when needed, to gain clarity and push ideas. She was consistently a powerful collaborator with the strategy discipline because she is hungry for insight-driven work, and always keeps the consumer mindset as the compass for creative execution.
