Emily McDowell

Emily McDowell is a writer, illustrator, entrepreneur, and speaker who specializes in chronicling the human condition. In 2012, she left a successful career in advertising to launch her greeting card line, making cards for the relationships we really have. Now a multimillion-dollar stationery and gift company, Emily McDowell Studio products are sold online at emilymcdowell.com and in nearly 2,000 stores worldwide. In 2015, Emily’s Empathy Cards, designed to help people connect around serious illness and loss, struck a nerve globally, and Slate.com named her one of 10 Designers Who Are Changing the World. Her work has been featured in hundreds of media outlets, including The New York Times, BBC News, The Wall Street Journal, NBC Nightly News, and Good Morning America. Emily's first book, "There Is No Good Card For This: What To Say and Do When Life Gets Scary, Awful, and Unfair To People You Love," coauthored with empathy expert Dr. Kelsey Crowe, was released in January 2017.
