Mary Em. em is for empathy

WHY AM I HERE

Creation of beautiful visuals and telling stories have always been my passions. From watching every episode of Art Attack as a child to creating a blog with custom design at the age of 10. (When I turned 11, I downloaded photoshop, learned to code and did my first photoshoot in the backyard of my grandparents’ house). 

 

15 years later I learned to do it professionally and help others to tell their stories with a more strategic approach.

 THAT PHOTOSHOOT AND THE POTENTIAL IT HELD 

CAUSE WHAT IS LIFE IF NOT A CRAZY STORY?

 

AS EVERYTHING COULD BE FOUND ALMOST FOR FREE, PEOPLE ARE PAYING FOR SIMPLICITY AND EXPERIENCES. I BELIEVE THAT NOW MORE THAN EVER WE NEED CLEAR EYE CATCHING WAYS TO SHOWCASE BRANDS.

 

AND I AM HERE TO HELP YOU CLARIFY YOUR STORY AND MAKE IT AESTHETIC AND UNIQUE.

I DEFINE MYSELF AS A TCK*

Hey, I am Mary (Мари)! Born in Kazakhstan, in the city beside the Caspian Sea, at the age of 3 I moved to Beijing with my family. After 15 years of wonderful growing up experience in Asia, I moved to France to study visual communications. As in my lifetime I often found myself in completely new environments, I understood this world through colours, shapes, expressions, developed a strong empathy, the ability to listen, to adapt and pay close attention to details. It made me absorb parts of various cultures such as French, Chinese, Kazakh, Dutch, Mexican, Russian.

* Third Culture Kids are people who were raised in a culture other than their parents' or the culture of their country of nationality, and also live in a different environment during a significant part of their child development years.
