Welcome, Femi and Emily

In December 2021 we welcomed two new senior designers to the Design Democracy fold.

Emily Bailey and Femi Coppi have been seamless additions to our busy studio, each bringing their personal flavour and strengths to our tight-knit team.

Versatile, quick-thinking, empathic. These are the traits that can make a good designer great. We feel very lucky to have them on board.


Relaxed in manner, but with a laser-like focus, Emily is a composed and highly creative senior designer. Resourceful and with an eye for current trends, she is enthusiastic about the overlap between good humans and good design.

In a fast-paced studio role, Emily has proven her versatility, excelling at brand development, corporate publications design, interiors styling, art direction, exhibition design and social media content creation. Systems-driven, she demonstrates her love of shared platforms on the regular, showing initiative and supporting ease of collaboration with the broader Design Democracy team.


Adventurous and kind, Femi is drawn to creative tasks that make a difference to the lives of others. As a graphic designer she has worked in diverse roles: from architecture practices to advertising and branding agencies across Australia and North America.

Versatile and empathic, Femi contributes readily to the Design Democracy team, translating briefs into mission-driven concepts, and building rapport and good will as she goes. Trained in fine art and studio production, she busies her hands when she can, sculpting jewellery, or building 3D models for both work and pleasure.

Design Democracy meets and works on Taungurung, Dja Dja Wurrung and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung lands. We pay our respect to the traditional custodians past, present and emerging, and support their endeavours and autonomy.
