About

A Few Things About Me

I'm a Web & Graphic Designer in Los Angeles, with a passion for all things creative and a fascination with the technology that brings creative ideas to life. I enjoy the creative process from start to finish—from concept to production and development. I studied both Web & Graphic Design, earning degrees in both, so that I could develop a holistic approach to creative problem solving across various mediums. Because of this, I have worked in various roles as a Graphic Designer, Web Designer and a Front-End developer on projects for brands like TOMS, Ford, Samsung, Lenovo and Smashbox.

Client Feedback

“We requested a very quick turn around on a project, and I'm thrilled we found Amanda to do it. She got started right away, was upbeat about the project, and was an absolute pleasure to work with through out the process. Amanda did not sacrifice quality of work for the short production time.”
Caitlin Coble, Social Media Director at TOMS
