Emily Krause



My conviction is amplifying your convictions’ and bringing inspired ideas to fruition

Whether she’s doing graphic design, website building or hosting training workshops, Emily’s talent allows her to be both the tech-whisperer and creative agent at the same time. Our clients love her expertise in executing creative concepts and her ability to design and develop their distinct websites, no matter their design style. Plus, her organizational and task management skills keep us on track and on time, which makes for delightful relationships! When she isn’t working, Emily spends as much time offline as possible—hiking and hula-hooping!

Emily is a passionate soul and always puts her whole self into her values...and her work. She genuinely cares and wants to help clients “crush” their design goals. Although she is ambitious and assembled, Emily possesses an easy-going and down-to-earth personality. Some of her favorite memories at Design Powers are winning the 2020 Best Home-Based Business Award from the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, using a real working Linotype machine, AWEsome Women events, and weekdays out-of-office trekking around Washington DC at art museums.


Emily’s background in branding, graphic, and user interface design empowers her to create impactful marketing materials and websites that connect with people and get them to take action. She’s worked for Design Powers for six years—starting out as an intern in 2016, working part-time gaining professional experience while earning her degree, and transitioned to full-time work in 2018.

In 2015 Emily graduated Magna Cum Laude from Northern Virginia Community College with an Associate of Arts (AFA) degree in fine and studio arts and in 2018 graduated Summa Cum Laude from George Mason University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree from the Art & Visual Technology program with a concentration in graphic design.

She’s lucky to have worked with awe-inspiring clients and on exciting projects, including logo design, brand identity design, website design and development, editorial/print layout, film/video production, and podcast/audio editing.
