about

big city talent

small town values

I’m Amanda, owner and designer at notinsidethebox designs. I work with companies across the country, both big and small, to develop the visual forms of their brands. I strive to deliver beautiful designs that focus on simplicity and purpose.

Developing a brand’s identity is one of my favorite areas of graphic design. I enjoying translating a company’s unique qualities and style into a comprehensive visual personality and then using that identity to design one-of-a-kind solutions from digital websites to printed brochures.

I pride myself on the quality of work I provide to my clients. I try to make the design process enjoyable and always aim for the highest client satisfaction, all while delivering great design solutions with a smile.

my story
I led the design effort of multiple national brands at one of the world’s largest advertising agencies. I developed solutions for my clients’ marketing materials such as logos, brand elements, and collateral pieces. I delivered a high standard of design quality while handling multiple ongoing assignments and meeting various deadlines. It was a fast-paced environment which was thrilling! 

After years of the long commutes and a stressful lifestyle, it was time to move out of the big city. My husband and I decided to settle down in a small New England town. I now balance my time in the office with fresh air, bikes, and cat cuddles.

I haven’t looked back since.
