THE GIRL //
From a young age Amanda was drawn to Graphic Design. She poured over magazines, tearing out inspiring photos and gluing cutout type together creating elaborate collages that would adorn her notebooks and bedroom walls. Eventually this interest in images and words lead her to study Graphic Design at Cal State Northridge where her she learned how to digitize her creativity, sharpen her eye and hone her talents. There she served as Creative Director of SAGA and Project Manager at VISCOM.
Now that she's been out of the University system for a few years, Amanda has grown to be a successful Graphic and Product Designer working for a variety of local companies, large and small. In these days of economic uncertainty, Amanda gives people and their businesses a way to stand above the crowd. Her energy and youthful spirit are a breath of fresh air in an industry where corporations are increasingly stifling creativity.
Amanda was born into an artistic family in Los Angeles California. When she's not glued to her computer, she's found exploring the downtown foodie spots with M, taking a cooking class or photography workshop or reading on the sofa with Dice, the obese but lovable cat sidekick. If she weren't such a successful graphic designer, Amanda would either be a stunt car driver or a jazz singer.
THE BLOG //
Amanda started blogging at Lime&Clementine in 2008 when she needed a platform to discuss the amazing things she was learning in Art History classes. L&C gave birth to LOVE Creative in 2012 as the place Amanda dishes on all facets of her creative interests: Design, music, books, food, fashion and Art.
