It’s hard to find someone outside of the company who cares enough to help create a vision and handle the important branding aspects of a design project. That’s what we needed, and Amanda was able to be that visionary for our company while working as a consultant. The project plan was laid out specifically and concisely, and she followed it, but was also able to be flexible where needed, researching and filling in the blanks around our ideas. I am very happy with her work for us and would easily recommend her services.

Amanda is a true pro who knows how to blend an easygoing demeanor with top-notch work. She took ownership of our project the minute she reviewed our specs to give a quote, and I’m pleased to have her as someone our team can call on for their skills and enthusiasm.

Amanda was truly a pleasure to work with. The 200-page photography book she designed was a huge hit at our international fundraiser in Hong Kong and drew in tens of thousands of dollars. She somehow managed to sync different opinions into a cohesive vision and accommodated our last-minute changes. She also pushed back with knowledgeable feedback when she felt that our ideas would not accomplish the overall purpose of the book. I was really impressed by her meticulous attention to detail, even for things that might not typically fall within design work. I’ll definitely seek Amanda’s design expertise in the future.

I have worked with Amanda multiple times on web design projects for my personal blog. She is thorough in explaining her approach and very knowledgable in her field. She’s great at breaking down the terms of what we needed to focus on and also highlights things that I didn’t think about or just maybe wasn’t aware of. She can explain things in layman’s terms to someone who’s not a designer, which is a tremendous asset to her and a big help to someone working with her, especially for the first time. Her work is top rate, she listens to my requests and concerns and takes those into consideration when producing work, and also makes suggestions on design that I often like more than my original vision for what I thought I wanted! I’d highly recommend Amanda for any design project

Amanda provides excellent design services at a fair price. She is a great communicator and listener, and intuitively created what I had in mind. I’ve gotten tons of compliments on my site design and business cards. I’m also grateful for her approachability and her patience in reading my lengthy emails!

I love working with Amanda because she goes above and beyond to take care of all the little details involved with a large project. I don’t have to ask or worry about it – it’s just done, and done well.

I first selected Amanda as the artist for my indie book covers based on seeing a book cover she did on her website. I had specific design requirements for the new cover to match the look and feel of my three existing novels. She came back with two excellent designs. She does excellent work, keeps me in the loop when selecting stock images, and indulges my whims to see titles in different colors or fonts until we get the perfect look. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

As idealistic and perfectionistic new business owners of a small, artisan candle company, my husband and I had wild ideas about our logo and label design and needed someone who would understand our vision and could bring it into being. Amanda proved to be that person. She delivered a logo and labels that exceeded our expectations; marrying clean graphic design with beautiful, intricate artwork that represents ‘us’ wonderfully. We would recommend her to anyone not only for the quality of her art and design work, but also because she’s incredibly pleasant to work with; always responding to our emails swiftly and aptly, with remarkable understanding. The whole process from idea to result went very smoothly; even after we’d moved overseas.
