Em Cole is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work spans across photography, motion, set design and VR technologies. Em’s work is situated at the intersection of art and technology, pushing the boundaries of what ‘The Image’ means today, exploring critical viewpoints on human communication in a post-digital age. She is influenced by what she feels our over-stimulated and desensitised eyes are craving, her visual style combining sensory stimulation and a brazen sense of humour.
Em holds degrees in Material Design and Information Experience Design, having completed her MA at the RCA.
Recent clients include Instagram, Lotto, Puma, Interscope, Sony Music, Bompas & Parr, WAH Nails, I-D, Hunger and King Kong Magazine.
Em Cole was recently commissioned by Facebook Creative Shop to direct a series of films for selling site, Mercari. Creating a world of weird and wonderful characters including gluttonous hamsters, a millennial alien and a technophobe, this was the perfect brief for Em to use her wealth of creativity.
Em Cole was recently commissioned by KK Outlet to shoot for Italian sportswear brand, Lotto. Shooting both stills and motion content, Em created a series of striking and surreal assets for the brand. Big thanks to KK Outlet for the commission as well as fabulous Amy Friend for set design and grooming from Elkie Philips.
Em Cole was recently commissioned by Instagram to create a series of videos for their #INSTAGIFTGUIDE.

Huge thanks to Instagram and all the amazing crew in New York who made everything come together.
