About Emphasis Creative



Liz ManicatideEmphasis Creative is a full service graphic design and online development firm in the Boston area. We specialize in startups and full brand identity packages, taking your business to the next level.

In an information-rich environment, by applying sound design principles and the right technology, we aim to engage the user in an easy and pleasing experience.


Emphasis Creative is headed by artist and web developer Liz LaManche (formerly Liz Manicatide), with over 10 years experience in the software industry doing graphic design and user interface consulting. Ms. LaManche has a successful history of designing company branding initiatives that span web, print and collateral, and software user interface design.

Emphasis Creative is a "Virtual Team", drawing on the expertise of a range of senior level consultants and up-and-coming talents in different disciplines. The Virtual Team approach means personnel can be chosen according to the specific needs of your project, and collaborate to make a unified solution that best fits your goals and budget. This also means we have lower overhead, and can be more flexible and responsive than the big design firms.

Emphasis Creative's team of professionals provide expertise in networks and programming, video, photography, illustration, animation, logo and graphic design, writing and editing, and web and mobile development. Whatever your project, we have access to the right skills to do the job.
