AIGA members $10 / nonmembers $15 CO Exhibitions 1101 Stinson Blvd NE #2 Minneapolis, MN. 55413 Presented by AIGA Minnesota Emerging Designers Committee. “So…” is the beginning of a question, an idea, a community, a statement. Emerging designers (typically in their first 4 years out of school) are brought together through a quarterly series of lectures, discussions and social networking hours. This is place where we explore the essential topics that you were never taught in school, or have been dying to ask since you broke into design.

Contact Leadership

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.
