Emily Lonigro Boylan, Owner and Creative Director
A leader with the ability to combine strategic marketing, branding expertise and smart design, Emily is a practical idealist with a vision. In January of 2004, she founded LimeRed Studio with a plan to prioritize high-quality design, usability and meaningful social impact over gratuitous flashiness and fads.
With a record of successfully translating goals, content, and audiences into beautiful, user-friendly, effective design, Emily is proud to walk the talk. She’s played the roles of agency, in-house and contract designer and so brings a depth of experience. She is also a dedicated, high-integrity leader with some serious planning and management chops. She loves to share what she knows and often presents at conferences, participates in panel discussions and leads instructional workshops for nonprofit organizations.
Emily's portfolio spans design, marketing and planning experiences in both online and offline programs for multinational corporations, nonprofits, universities, boutique businesses and prestigious consumer brands. Today, LimeRed’s primary focus is serving nonprofit and educational organizations to do work that makes people’s lives better. In 2010, She also co-founded The Web Farm, a web site optimization, measurement and marketing strategy firm. Emily earned her B.A. in journalism and mass communication from Drake University.
Outside of LimeRed Studio, Emily fully immerses herself in extracurriculars and pet projects, like gardening, knitting and baking pies. She lives in Chicago with her husband Dan Boylan, daughter Ginger, and their kitties Jesse and Tom Jones.
