about me

hello,
i’m amy

i am a designer {web design + graphic design}.

I live in pacific wonderland of the great Northwest. While I love rain, I hate clouds. If only it could rain while the sun was shining! Sunshine and rainbows, who could ask for anything more? If I’m not sitting in front of my Mac designing beautiful things, I’m probably doing mom stuff with my little girl, Tilly. You can also find me wandering around in the forest, looking for a random dirt road to explore in my jeep or hanging out with my family. I love art, design, my family, chocolate, my good friends, when other people cook me food, building things, working on my little house, exploring and all things outdoors – except clouds.

my résumé

Profile

I have a passion for graphic design both digital and printed. My Macintosh computer is the medium I prefer to work with to create my beautiful works of art. I specialize in graphic design & web development for businesses, organizations and individuals. My mission is to help my clients stand out from their competition by developing creative and enticing designs and web solutions. I create a brand identity enabling my clients to establish an online presence, increase business, and improve productivity.

SKILLS

I’ve been designing for over 25 years. I started out doing paste-up with a t-square and an X-ACTO knife in a small print shop. As time went on, I moved on to one bigger, better opportunity to the next, using state of the art equipment and technology. I’ve worked in design shops, advertising agencies and in-house creative departments of big companies. Now I work for myself {living the dream} and do it all on a Mac. I use the Adobe Creative Suite to perform my magic. I am competent in every aspect of the print media process; from the conception of an idea to the delivery of the product. I also design and develop websites, my favorite design work! I work exclusively with WordPress.
