AIGA Minnesota, along with five chapters across the country, recently participated in the inaugural Pop-up Innovate Mash-up. It was a 48-hour AIGA Innovate grant-funded intensive in Chicago with partner Firebelly.
In stark contrast to the frigid temps of a winter evening in Minneapolis, the warm brick and wood interior of Leadpages’ downtown HQ was a welcoming home for our new UX Group’s first-ever interactive panel discussion.
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.
