Amy Blunden

Graphic Designer

Denver, CO, USA
I love to communicate big ideas. I originally honed my communication skills in the arena of writing, where I used language to paint vivid pictures with words. When I dove into the realm of visual design, I realized that I could easily reverse that process and refine concepts into imagery with impact. Typography is my favorite, because it's both writing and design, simultaneously. I love to work with a variety of styles, from bright and bold to sleek and sophisticated. I'd love to work and collaborate with people who can share in my passion and excitement for creation and innovation.
