Career-Topping Experiences:North Prairie Tileworks

Come and Learn About Handmade Ceramic Tiles

From the first sketch to the final installation, North Prairie Tileworks transforms clay into artfully designed tiles that grace handsome homes and businesses throughout North America and Canada. Known for craftsmanship and attention to detail, North Prairie Tileworks prides itself on the ability to create distinct tiles that are at home in both historic and contemporary structures. Specializing in the designs and color palette of the Arts and Crafts movement, North Prairie Tileworks’ custom-made glazes and firing methods bring to mind historic tiles created by well-known masters such as Ernest Batchelder and William H. Grueby.

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.
