It's International Women's Day - celebrate with us!
Emagine is celebrating International National Women's Day the only way we know best - by celebrating the hard-working female members of our team!
While the design and development worlds can be seen as a traditionally male environment, Emagine are committed to overcoming and challenging this stereotype. We strive to continue to hire and promote female designers and developers within the company, as well as mentor and train entry-level designers and coders.
Women play an integral role in Emagine, from web development and design, to video production, to illustration and brand development. See some of the work from our talented colleagues below, and find out who their major female role models were throughout life.
