Hi – I'm Emily Gallardo – a graphic designer in Boston, Massachusetts.

GallardoWorks is the repository for my many creative impulses. In the past several years, I’ve had an undiagnosed obsession with cross-stitch patterns resulting in a collection of US presidential portraits, continuing with other political and historical luminaries.

This started as a lark but I’ve found that other people share my enthusiasm for history and crafts which is why I’ve designed kits, prints, and buttons to share with fellow crafters and history fans.

I'm also a calligrapher and an artist. But that’s a story for another website.
