So…Let's Break the Ice

Networking is great… but what you really need is good friends in your field. Let’s face it, the best kind of friends are designer friends, so we’re going to help you find them. Join us at Tugg’s Tavern on Main Street for some eats and drinks (hopefully out on the deck). We have some ice breaker games up our sleeve, so don’t worry about coming by yourself… you are likely to walk out with some new pals. At dusk, we’ll head to Father Hennepin Bluffs Park across the street where they’re playing “Wall-E,” starting 15 minutes after sunset. Be sure to bring your picnic blanket and mosquito repellent.

Amanda Sagstetter
Director of Career Practice
With strong design thinking and creative execution, Amanda has been a graphic designer and effective visual communicator for the past 15 years. She graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor’s degree in Design Communication in 2001. Since graduating she has worked at such companies as SUPERVALU, USP Structural Connectors, and Syncada from Visa. Currently she is an in-house designer at Thrivent Financial.

She sees the big picture and understands that her designs have to do more than look visually appealing; they have to convey the brand, communicate a message, and help achieve the desired goals. Passionate about the brands and designs that she works on, she is always looking for a new, creative, and innovative way to express an idea or message.

Amanda has become increasingly active in AIGA Minnesota over the past few years as a member of the In-House Designers Committee, for which she served as the Committee Chair for a year and a half, and now as the Director of Career Practice.
