Direct yet conceptual. Provocative and engaging. Design & illustration for brands, publications, and people.


Emily Straubel - UX Writer & Futurist

Before Charles Babbage, Steve Jobs and Elon Musk began their work, there was an army of women and men who designed and imagined technology beyond their own reality in the minds of their readers. 

Gibson, Wells, Huxley, Le Guin, Orwell, Clarke, and Brunner, built advanced technology - not for profit - but for their characters and their stories. This imagined future is where I find inspiration. 

I'm a UX Writer and Technology Strategist because I bask in bringing these fantasies to life, in the space where the future of humanity and technology meet.
