HI, I'M EMEI
I'm a published author, illustrator and cartoonist working as a Senior Narrative Artist for Media Molecule with 6 years of industry experience. I'm originally from Sweden but am currently based in Guildford, UK.
I love collaborating and I'm passionate about story structure, linking story to gameplay and writing wholesome quirky characters. I'm especially interested in storytelling
through narrative design, visual development and comics.
I'm a BAFTA Connect member, I've done a few talks and lectures at events and universities, planned and released 2 seasons of a podcast and I've been nominated for multiple comics and games awards.

Senior Narrative Artist
2019 - present
In my hybrid role combining art and narrative at Media Molecule I have worked across a series of projects for Dreams™ PS4 including Tren, multiple UGC driven live service events, collaborations with The Barbican Centre and Oxford University, and the Dreams VR Release.
My art responsibilities includes art direction, concept development, visual development, concept art, environment design, storyboarding, and art-passing environments using the Dreams pipeline.
My narrative responsibilities includes IP development, narrative direction, narrative development, narrative design, game writing, flowcharts, storyboarding, and designing and delivering presentations.
As a concept artist on A Monster's Expedition I was responsible for early visual development, idea generation, character design, prop design and location design.
Graphic Novel Author
From the pitching stage to the final delivery of the book, I was the author and artist of my graphic novel We Served the People, My Mother's Stories.
I took the book from concept development, character design, location design, script writing, script editing, thumbnails & storyboards, rough sketches, line art, color script, final colors and through to delivery.
I was responsible for all of the background paintings for the animated short Beetle + Bean. Starting from existing black and white background designs I planned the entire color script and painted 30-40 backgrounds in a two month period, while staying on schedule and incorporating feedback.
