I'm very honored and excited to welcome you to AIGA Minnesota's new website, a project that has been in the works for nearly a year. As an organization that represents communications professionals, it's important for us to have an interactive presence that is in keeping with the standards of excellence shared by our members.
AIGA Minnesota is proud to have been selected host the 2011 AIGA Leadership Retreat. For more than 20 years, the retreat has offered chapter and community leaders a chance to share their successes and learn from each other.
A lifelong artist and emerging designer, Amy has been a member of AIGA since 2012, which is when she attended her first Portfolio 1-on-1 event as a college student. Since receiving her BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire in 2013, she has worked as a graphic designer for Bōbiam, a retail merchandise company, the Minnesota Orchestra, a Grammy-Award winning orchestra, and is currently a designer at Sigma Beauty, an international cult cosmetic brand headquartered in Minnesota. Recognizing the need to be an active participant in the design community, Amy was nominated to serve as AIGA Minnesota’s Director of Communications. In this position, she maintains all chapter communications, and serves various working committees in order to best accomplish their individual goals.
In her free time, she enjoys sharpening her culinary skills, playing music, getting creative in the art studio, sweating it out at the gym, and exploring new places. She is also a big proponent of the Oxford comma and drinking a glass of red wine daily.
