Emily began her career in advertising as a Strategic Planner, working on many top brands under General Mills and Procter & Gamble, as well as DeBeers, where she led research for all major brand initiatives and developed strategies for multiple launches. She started her career at D'Arcy, followed by Saatchi & Saatchi and JWT. Her years as a Strategist, combined with an entrepreneurial spirit, inspired her to form Red Antler in order to directly apply consumer insights and brand positioning to business growth. Emily graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard University, where she studied postmodern theory and consumer culture. Born and raised in New York, she and her dog Sprout currently live in Boerum Hill. An accomplished sculptor, Simon has 18 years of experience in advertising and branding, including work for Target, Sony, Tommy Hilfiger, Citibank, Royal New Zealand Ballet, and Amnesty International. Before Red Antler, Simon was a co-founder of Team ProAm, growing the business for seven years. This followed a two year stint as Senior Designer with Kirshenbaum, Bond & Partners, NY. Simon holds a BFA Honors in Sculpture from Canterbury University. A New Zealand native, Simon lives in Cobble Hill with his wife and two sons, and plays a mean game of tennis.
