Emily Eisenhart is a multidisciplinary artist and designer based in Austin, Texas. The daughter of an artist and anthropologist, she grew up with a paintbrush in one hand and a field book in the other. She is constantly exploring, and her work is heavily inspired by the textures, patterns, shapes, and natural colors around her.
While painting and illustration are her forte, she often experiments with new styles and media. She has painted on all scales, from tiny portraits to 150-foot murals, and has designed everything from tour trucks to animated videos. Operating at the intersection of the design and art worlds, her work is simultaneously strategic and spontaneous. With a background in Anthropology, she approaches many of her projects as an ethnographer, diving deep into the culture of a place to create dynamic, story-driven artwork.
Prior to opening her own studio, she cut her teeth at the world-class design firm IDEO where she worked with clients such as Nike, Microsoft, and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. As an independent artist, she has collaborated with wide-ranging brands the likes of Starbucks, Keds, Madewell, Facebook, Outdoor Voices, and W Hotels, in addition to a diverse array of small and large clients around the country and in her home base of Austin.
“Working with the team at Miller IDS has been fantastic. As an artist whose projects are wildly diverse, they are a go-to shop for many of my print needs. They’ve helped me on everything from digital prints to hi-res image scanning to custom postcards to color print proofs for large murals. I can trust that they will do an excellent job regardless of what I send their way. The team is dynamic, friendly, helpful (shout out to Dana and her color matching skills!), and professional. They’ve felt very much like a creative partner to me and I’m glad to be able to print locally.”
