Who is Studio Guerassio?

Studio Guerassio is a no-nonsense design firm specializing in visual branding for creative, lifestyle and leisure businesses.

It’s currently a one-woman operation, with big ideas and the skills to make them happen.

These are the ideas at the core of how Studio Guerassio operates:

Fairness

Expertise should be valued, as should straightforward communication.

Quality

Attention to detail, and the reliability to do what I say I will, in the time I say I will.

Purposeful Design

Strategy and aesthetics aren’t opposing ideas, they work together.

Freedom

To escape the Job Trap™, set my own schedule and choose what I work on and who I work with.

Oh, you meant that literally?

Well then:

 

Founder & Designer

Guerassio: pronounced grr-AHH-see-oh.
It just rolls off the tongue once you know how to say it.

I’ve been playing in Photoshop since middle school, and (more formally) received my BFA in Graphic Design in 2006. Fate brought me down to Austin after college, and love of independence took me into freelancing. In the fall of 2015, I got married, which lead to a new last name and a new business incarnation (you may have formerly seen me freelancing as Amanda Cobb).

These days I reside in Round Rock with my husband and dog. Aside from design, I dabble in screen printing, blogging and photography, and can often be found with my nose in a book. I’m an avid traveler, and amateur cook. I unabashedly prefer email, physical books, fuzzy socks, the color purple, and moscato.
