Like many designers, I’m passionately in love with what I do. But unlike many of my peers, my entry into the design world wasn’t fueled by a love of doodling. My journey actually started in journalism; I love to write. Writing led to photography, photography led to layout, and it was my love of print layout that finally led me to graphic design.
While it was a longer journey to find myself where I’m at today, the wide range of knowledge and experience I’ve gained along the way finds itself invaluable time and time again. My “brief” background overview is as follows: writing, photography, videography, video editing, print design, information graphics, web design, front-end web development, user experience, SEO and A/B user testing. (Now say that 3 times fast.)
Originally from Texas, I currently call Missouri home. When I’m not working, you will find me helplessly infatuated with my beautiful baby girls or running on the many Ozark Greenway trails. Unless it’s football season that is as I’m a devoted Dallas fan. How ‘bout them Cowboys!
Take a look around but please pardon the mess as I am doing some major house cleaning; full site in the works. You can take a peek at some of my work here and you can find even more of my ranting on twitter @amberwilks.
