Emily McDowell

Emily is an illustrator/designer based in LA – she is best known for her Empathy Cards which are designed to give to people with serious illnesses. As a cancer survivor herself, her cards express the sentiment that Emily wishes she had received during her illness. Speaking of what inspired her growing card range, Emily says “I was very interested in the idea of making cards for the relationships we actually have, since so much of what was out there were traditional messages that I didn’t feel personally connected to.”
