Emily Steer is the editor of Elephant magazine. She joined the team in 2015 as online editor, having previously worked for five years as a freelance arts and food journalist (specializing in abrasive cheeses) for titles including the Telegraph, Time Out, Grazia, i-D and Munchies. She studied at Central Saint Martins and Camberwell College of Arts, graduating with a BA in Drawing. She has since refused to draw a single thing, despite ongoing encouragement from the Elephant team.
