Over a decade of designing equals a lot of happy clients.

Sometimes they like to shower me with praise and great feedback. Here’s what some of them had to say:

Amanda was amazing to work with! We have a small team of mostly family with varying professional backgrounds, so it can be hard to get us all on the same page. Amanda was able to take in everyone’s unique wants and concerns, and build a plan for us to move forward with that we could all get on board with.

Now, our brand is on its way to looking more cohesive and preparing for a national expansion!

I have worked with many freelance and small creative teams and Amanda was one of the few who very aptly asked the right questions to bring out the best in our brand brief, then nailed the brief on her deliverable. She had good instincts about what narrative we wanted to tell with our brand identity. We are a team of two and Amanda handled our feedback seamlessly!

Visual branding wasn’t really something that was even on my radar at first. It wasn’t until I looked into more that I realized just how much a visual brand can have an impact on your business.

Having my visual branding done has made my confidence go to another level. I truly feel like it’s not only a fantastic representation of what I do, but I also feel like it makes such a better impression to potential clients.

I’m SO glad I decided to have Amanda craft a beautiful look to help me further establish my growing business.

Cassidy Hallesy

Website Copywriter & Designer

My brand was not easily portrayed visually, but Amanda captured it perfectly and it looks amazing!

She was really thorough, starting with a long and in-depth questionnaire that not only helped her understand my brand, but helped me understand it better. She was really communicative and collaborative too.

I 100% recommend Amanda!

Amanda did such an epic job on all of this, exceeding my expectations. There’s something amazing about having your brand professionally done. Give her a shout if you are interested in increasing your brand’s appeal and professionalism.

She has taken Slackers to a whole new level and helped me understand my brand and business better than ever.

Founder, Slackers Brewing Co.

I hired Amanda first to brainstorm on my branding, then to work on my logo and color palette, and her expertise was very much appreciated. It was such a relief to have someone with experience and knowledge helping me steer the look of my business in the right direction. I will definitely be working with her again in the future!

The new logo concept Amanda developed is such a great representation of the brand we’ve always wanted to project, but never could have imagined by ourselves. We are so excited to have a fresh new look that better reflects who we are as a business!

founders of Lightning Media Partners

I was immediately comfortable with Amanda. Most importantly, she understood what I wanted and shared ideas for me to consider. It was great to have a professional help me think about what I might need. I know I asked a lot of questions about what she could design and then how I could use it. Every single question was answered!

Amanda was OUTSTANDING to work with!

Leadership Coach, CEO, Kimberly Penharlow Consulting

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.

Lawrence Sasso

Founder, Austonian Spirits

I liked how professional she was, her boundaries, her design skills and how on top of things she was.
She sticks to deadlines, is thorough, there’s no bullshit or errors in her work.

Harper Spero

Business Coach & Host of Made Visible Podcast

Amanda was very thorough from beginning to end, starting with her branding questionnaire. She asked very specific questions about my background and goals, and she was able to reflect them all on my website in a very short amount of time. I appreciate Amanda’s diligence and seamless work to get my site up and running! Looking forward to working with her again soon.

Yoko Kawashima

Functional Medicine Health Coach

Amanda’s great to work with: she’s reliable, affordable, and best of all, does quality work.

She has helped us turn blah-looking ebooks into professional works of art, which goes a long way toward boosting sales and building our brand.

She’s receptive to feedback and turns around edits quickly. I highly recommend her!

Alexis Grant

Founder, The Write Life

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.

Lisa Rowan

Writer, Editor, Podcast Host

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.

Lauren Everitt

Editor in Chief, Akilah Net

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.

Bob Miersma

Publisher, Miersma Publishing

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.

Blogger, The Stylish Disaster

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!

It’s a rare breed to find such a good artist that is also good with business.

Justin Rhodes

Owner, Abundant Permaculture

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.

Brad Whittington


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.

Martine Welling

Co-Owner, Bodhi Bee Waxworks

I have worked with Amanda on several graphic design projects since 2007. She is an expert at interpreting the needs of the client, and produces imaginative and innovative designs. Amanda never misses a deadline and is very easy to work with no matter how large or small the project.

Leslie Archambault

I loved working with Amanda.

She made creating my book cover fun and painless. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
