amanda-cobb Hi there! You’ve landed on the website for Amanda Cobb, Freelance Designer Extraordinaire serving the Austin area and beyond. That’s me there to the right.

I have been freelancing full-time for 8 years, and before that had agency experience and got my degree in graphic design. My design philosophy boils down to ‘make it pretty, but more so make it work‘ – I don’t think aesthetics should be an impediment for clear communication and usability. But I also don’t think beautiful aesthetics need to be sacrificed for function. A happy blending is what I’m all about.

My style has been called many things. Refined. Professional. Uncluttered. Elegant. Simple in the best of ways. Or, my favorite: “sophisticated, but with an edge.” Every designer has trends and things they gravitate towards, so here are a few of mine: Juxtaposition. High contrast. Texture. Dynamic photos. Earth tones and ocean tones. Stark black.

If you want the technical stats, my resume and other info can be found in the sidebar to the right.

Aside from design, I dabble in screen printing, blogging and photography and can often be found with my nose in a book. I’m an avid traveler, and amateur cook. I live in Round Rock with my boyfriend and dog.

And as a bonus if you read this far, a little glimpse into where the magic happens (otherwise known as my home office):

My desk.
And no, it’s not always that neat.
