Emmi Laakso

Senior Designer
New York, NY
As a Senior Designer at Potion, Emmi seeks to bring elegant simplicity and a little bit of nature into every project she works on. Originally trained in print design, typography and design thinking at the Rhode Island School of Design, Emmi began her career as a freelance game designer for Hasbro, which got her hooked onto creating experiences.

Since joining Potion, Emmi has followed her passion into new territories, leading the design of notable projects such as the Richard Avedon App, Future Energy Chicago at the Museum of Science and Industry, and Forest Friends at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, which received the CA Interaction Award in 2016.

Outside of her passion for design, Emmi is also long-distance hiker, illustrator, and has co-authored a published scientific study on the use of gender in language.
