I'm Emma Bäcklund, a freelance Graphic Designer & Camera Woman based in Torquay, Australia. 

I was born and raised on a farm in the northern part of Sweden. In 2011 I made the move over to Melbourne to finish my Advertising Bachelor degree at RMIT. During my last year of university, I relocated to the Surf Coast. I started to freelance for the larger surf companies, Rip Curl and Quiksilver and soon landed a more permanent Graphic Designer role for Patagonia, based out of Torquay. 

I worked for Patagonia Australia for five years and recently left the company in May 2018 to pursue my freelancing career.

My Graphic Design experience covers areas such as design for in-store point of sale, catalog design, web design, newsletter design & layout, print advertising design, store fit-outs, OMNI campaigns, event planning.

I am currently offering Graphic Design, Web Design and Photography services on a project or hourly basis. Please send me an email below to inquire.
