Emily Shaffer Rodvold


Hello. My name is Emily Rodvold and I am the founder of Lift Creative, a boutique agency specializing in beautiful, effective designs with a personal touch.

I began my career in the corporate arena, gaining more than eight years of experience as a Print Designer, Web Designer and Art Director. While I enjoyed the work and loved the camaraderie, I craved the opportunity to make more of an impact, with a broader variety of clients.

I wanted to build relationships and become a trusted partner to my clients. I wanted to immerse myself in their projects; to understand their purpose, industry and audience; to help them accomplish their goals. I wanted to work with companies – large and small – who share my passion for excellence. I wanted to assist nonprofits and candidates who were seeking to improve our communities. In short, I started Lift Creative because I wanted to elevate important work.

I wanted to design for good.

Today I am very fortunate to have hundreds of loyal clients across the U.S., many of whom I consider friends. They not only return to me for help with new projects, but they are kind enough to refer me to their friends and colleagues. They share my passion for creating unique, beautiful designs to present them – and their companies, candidacies or causes – in the best possible light. They are the true inspiration behind Lift Creative.

Thanks to these amazing people and organizations, I am able to live and breathe good design every day – helping raise their profiles, enhance their brands and improve their businesses. And I’d love to do the same for you.
