Amy’s path as a designer has been clear since childhood, when she’d collect paint swatches at hardware stores or rip ads out of magazines that “looked cool.” After graduating in 2000 with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications from American University, Amy traded in her collection of paint swatches for Pantone books (professional color swatch books). Amy has worked for almost two decades in the web design, publishing and advertising industries. She enjoys learning about new clients and visually translating their message to the wider public. When Amy isn’t designing, she loves to travel and spend time with her husband, chasing around their two young daughters, and playing with their large chocolate Lab, Moose.
