EMMA LOGGINSCEO + DIRECTOR OF STRATEGY
Emma Loggins is a designer, marketer, blogger, and speaker. She is the CEO/founder and director of strategy for Excite Creative Studios, where she specializes in web development, UI/UX design, and social media marketing for her clients who are both inside and outside of the entertainment industry - helping them to develop a loyal fan following.
She has a Bachelors Degree in Multimedia and Web Design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh where she graduated with a 4.0 GPA and received the "Best in Show" award for her field, and she also has her MFA in Computer Arts and New Media at the Academy of Art in San Francisco.
Emma is also the founder and editor in chief of FanBolt.com where she is positioned as an expert on geek culture - from film and television to fan conventions and travel. Through the site and her social media, she works on influencer and sponsored campaigns for clients and even travels the world to various film locations to highlight must-visit destinations that tourism boards bring her in to promote.
She has spoken on panels at SXSW, Dragon Con, and TAG, as well as been a contributing writer for CNN's Geek Out Blog. She is also an on-camera host and panel moderator that travels with Walker Stalker Con, a sci-fi, horror and zombie convention that features the cast of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Emma launched an additional brand in 2016, Women's Business Daily, which is a website targeted at motivating and inspiring millennial female entrepreneurs.
Emma has worked with many large entertainment companies over the years - such as Warner Brothers and Fox - and was even interviewed by People Magazine for having one of the best television show websites. In 2016, she was named one of the top tech leaders in Atlanta to follow, and (still her proudest accomplishment) she was the Valedictorian of her graduating class in 2002 - which was four years after she launched her first web design company.
