The Essential List: Emily McCormick

Emily McCormick joined the Here Be Dragons team back in July in a split account executive-slash-junior creative role… and she’s been making bold creative and strategic moves ever since.

Having graduated with a BA in Fashion Communication and Promotion at Nottingham Trent University, Emily’s insightful knowledge about the latest Gen-Z trends and cultural shifts have become an inseparable part of the day-to-day workflow at Here Be Dragons. 

Emily’s a tenacious storyteller with a flare for the sneaker industry, stomping through new lands with a sick pair of sneakers each day — all while bravely navigating change and the challenges within.
