Emily M. Eng to join The Washington Post as assignment editor for Graphics team


Announcement from Graphics Director Chiqui Esteban and Deputy Graphics Director Tim Meko:

We are delighted to announce that Emily M. Eng is joining The Washington Post’s Graphics team as an assignment editor, working with a group of graphics reporters based on the West Coast.

Emily comes to The Post after six years at the Seattle Times, where she started as a news graphics artist and was promoted to lead the team after three years. In Seattle, she has combined her skills as a science illustrator with her capacity to lead. She led internal trainings for the graphics team to produce trackers, and the team became more invested in creating visually led stories.

Before joining the Times, Emily spent a year and a half at National Geographic. She started as an intern and was hired as a graphic designer, producing graphics and redesigning the magazine’s large print packages for multiple platforms.

Emily has a bachelor’s degree in biology from Santa Clara University and earned a science illustration graduate certificate from California State University. She lives in Seattle with her husband, Kurt, and their dachshund, Scooter. Emily brags about her sixth sense to find free food and once baked a model of an orca out of clay in a toaster oven.

Please join us in welcoming Emily to The Post. She will remain based in Seattle, and her first day is Aug. 29.
