Emily Oberman is a partner in the New York office of Pentagram. She is a multidisciplinary designer whose work encompasses brand identity, motion graphics, publications, packaging, advertising, and websites for clients that include hotels and restaurants, publishers, film and television, and nonprofit institutions. Her design is notable (hopefully) for its intelligence and sense of humor.
A native of Yonkers, New York, Emily studied design and filmmaking at the Cooper Union in New York City. After graduation she joined the legendary design studio M&Co., working with Tibor Kalman to create work for Knoll, Weiden & Kennedy, and Talking Heads, for whom they made the award winning music video for "(Nothing But) Flowers.”
Since joining Pentagram in 2011, Emily continues to do work that blurs the line between promotion and design - often using language and humor to make an emotional connection with its audience. Her clients include Snoop Dogg, Warner Brothers and NBC Universal (designing brand identities / titles for “The Tonight show Starring Jimmy Fallon", "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," and "Saturday Night Live," for whom she has done the title sequence for 20 years).
