About Emily Eaton

My 20-year career has been dedicated to finding that sweet spot where creativity meets business success. For myself, and for my clients.

After earning a BFA in Graphic Design from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design, I spent 20 years as a pioneer in the interactive communications industry — designing the very first websites for companies like Northwest Airlines (now Delta), Marvin Windows, and Ecolab.

After several successful years working at the leading graphic design and interactive firms in the Twin Cities, I launched my first solo business as a website and usability consultant for large companies in June of 2000. I was also hand-picked to be a founding board member of the Minnesota Interactive Marketing (MIMA), where I served for five years as a board member and Vice President.

In 2005, I recruited my husband John Golden to join my business. We re-branded as “EatonGolden,” which grew to employ over 12 people and was well-known as the Twin Cities’ leading interactive/user experience consulting firm.

After 20 years focusing on interactive media, I eventually felt ready to move in a new direction. So in 2013, I resigned from the business I had founded 13 years earlier. I left the business in the very capable hands of my husband, and moved on to pursue other passions.

In 2014, I created Eaton Intermedia which specializes in creating documentary-style videos for entrepreneurs, executives, and businesses. I also continue to consult with agencies and entrepreneurs to help maximize the effectiveness of their websites.

And when I’m not creating videos, I’m making art for myself and others.

Emily lives in Minneapolis with her husband of 20 years, and their 14-year-old son Oscar. Find Emily Eaton on LinkedIn and Facebook, and follow her personal Instagram feed and her art Instagram feed.
