Hi, I’m Amanda.

I am passionate about problem-solving and I use design as a way of thinking to create the most holistic solution possible. By viewing problems from a multi-human perspective while thinking about how to make it financially feasible and utilize as few resources as possible, I create a sustainable solution that is efficient and will last.

I like a challenge.

I take the time to work on projects that no one else will. I set my goals high, plan my route, and make changes until the best solution is found.

Together, we can take your business to the next level.

Why me?

Earning a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from Upper Iowa University, a non-profit, I continue my education through various mediums. I am currently pursuing a Master’s of Business Administration with an emphasis in Organizational Development. This will allow me to have the knowledge to create efficiencies on the inside as well as the outside of businesses.

I have developed a talent to drive innovation in a global society by rapidly prototyping and empathizing with customers to discover their needs. With attention to connections, I have developed strong mapping and contextualization skills. I don’t follow the crowds and seek out unexplored areas. I utilize my art, art history, art theory, design principles, and other various backgrounds to integrate marginal perspectives back into the mainstream. I adaptively move through space no one else sees – I innovate. 

Collaborating with others, I identify important subjects (i.e. energy, waste, sustainability), tackle in-depth research, and formulate interdisciplinary projects aimed at the production of new knowledge. This new information can make an understanding of the issues more successful. 

In other words, I am a humanitarian, philanthropist (in the sense that I seek to promote the welfare of others) and socially responsible individual who wants to make a positive impact on society. 

Therefore, I generally feel most fulfilled when partnering with non-profit organizations that are dedicated to the betterment of the whole population.

I want to work collaboratively to develop conditions for a sustainable future by solving humanity’s problems while maximizing the cultural richness of our lives. I have the ‘dreamer’ ambition to create a society where people are able to express themselves in their entirety using their ideas and talents of all kinds. I believe that if we all worked together, we could solve all our problems. 

In order to create the biggest impact possible, we need to work together. A collaboration on a global scale is necessary to change the world for us and for future generations. We take the time to create brands that last which are produced in a way that reduces waste and saves money.

Going Beyond Design

We approach design in a holistic manner. By using a wide lens, we gather information to nurture the collective whole.

Sustainability Practices

As a sustainable business, we always strive to use energy-efficient equipment, biodegradable cleaning products, and we recycle and compost our waste.

Values

As part of my values, I seek out organizations that value environmental responsibility, social responsibility, equality, and progressive ideologies that improve the world we inhabit. Particularly, I am fascinated by scientific exploration, committed to preserving wildlife habitats, enthusiastic about vegetarian/veganism, engaged in promoting and improving education and mental health, and proud allies of the LGBTQ+ community.

Education

I am passionate about education and information. As a lifetime learner, I am never without a new idea, project, or book.

  • Design Education
