Art Direction + Design + Letterpress


Art Direction + Visual Design

With 20 years of experience in agency and studio settings, Amy thrives on variety, detail, and the satisfaction of a job well done. She’s produced digital and print work for corporate and non-profit clients including Amazon Kindle, Chronicle Books, Microsoft, The Common Acre & YMCA.

A confident leader, she works well under pressure with a positive attitude, able to direct a project from its planning stage to delivery.

Letterpress Printing

To keep her creativity refreshed, Amy balances digital design with time in her Seattle letterpress studio, Amada Press, focusing on handset typography using metal and wood type.

She also teaches letterpress classes and team-building workshops at the School of Visual Concepts. To arrange a custom letterpress workshop for your group, please contact the school at 206-623-1560.


Things were getting a little stale in this corner of the internet, and with Spring nearly here it’s time to throw open the windows, sweep out the dust, and do a little site design update. Unfortunately, that means a little design portfolio downtime right now. (But if you simply must see it, here’s an older version.)
