Fa & Wild Design Co - About Emily 02

The first mountain I ever saw was from the airplane window just after my 18th birthday. It was love at first sight.

I was on my way to do a 21 day mountaineering course, starting north of Whistler BC, in the mountain range that I now call home. After three weeks in the backcountry, I was permanently affected by mountain love, and became a resident of BC shortly after. Today I live in a little cabin, not too far from my first mountain adventure. 

For me, happiness has always come from being in motion, and this has resulted in a long list of places lived, roads traveled and paths walked. The nomadic part of me likes to put a lot of miles on my shoes every week, and this is how I happen to have so many photographs of the Coast Mountains.

Far & Wild Design Co - About Emily

These photos provided the inspiration for a company I founded in 2014 called Mountain Love Co., showcasing our incredible West Coast wilderness through limited edition hand made products. Photographing my adventures has also led to numerous other opportunities to talk about my favorite subject (mountains) on Tourism BC, Tourism Whistler, The Outbound Collective, Backcountry Skiing Canada and other adventure blogs.

This website is home to Far & Wild Design Co. (formerly Anthem Design), a digital strategy and design company I started in 2009. For the past eight years, I’ve worked with entrepreneurs and business owners primarily in the health+wellness industry to create stand-out brands, unique visuals and original content.

I have limited availability for new projects but I’m always interested in hearing from innovative wellness companies, so drop me a line here or on Instagram at @lifeinthemtns if you’d like to chat.

See you on the other side!
