Studio Guerassio, LLC
Guerassio: pronounced grr-AHH-see-oh.
It just rolls off the tongue once you know how to say it.
Studio Guerassio is a design and branding studio dedicated to helping you find your visual voice. I work with businesses and individuals in the creative lifestyle sector to figure out their unique angle, and bring that to life in their design materials. You know the core of your business, the story; I know how to translate that into design that perfectly fits your business. I can take abstract ideas about the personality and impression you want your business to give off, and create a solid basis for your visual branding.
There’s no big firm or account managers to navigate through here. Every client works directly with me and only me. As a one-woman shop, I handle everything from our initial project discussion and quote, to the design work itself and the guided hand-off of your sparkly new files. The dog has more of a PR and morale position.
I believe that pretty design and strategic design aren’t mutually exclusive. Well-thought-out branding (visual and otherwise) can start your business off on the right foot, or give it new life. I believe family is important and that work-life balance is non-negotiable (I don’t work evenings of weekends). I believe in clear, to-the-point communication, and in sticking to deadlines. I also believe in providing the best design I can to my clients. Sometimes that means pushing back against an ill-considered idea, with design reasoning and alternate options- no sugar coating. I value clients who know the importance of design and trust in my expertise.
If that’s you, I can’t wait to hear from you.

My career as a freelance designer turned 10 years old this year, as did my Austin citizenship. I’m equally proud of both. 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 known me 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 and moscato.
