Your Design Assistant

About Page Badges.jpg
 

I'm Amy

I'm a designer, a problem solver, and a Montana girl. I have over a decade of experience working in print, and another six years of experience as a graphic designer. I love creating, walking, and DIY-ing everything. I have a fresh, modern, aesthetic, and I work to create beautiful designs that can be used and printed easily. More than anything though, I am inspired by my clients; by their businesses, their missions, their style, and I love bringing their ideas to life.

How it All started

I started my first business in 2009, designing wedding invitations.  It grew to include other wedding stationery,
then wedding adjacent events. Since then, I have created pieces for school fundraisers and auctions, helped small businesses
and non-profits with event stationery, brochures, and flyers, and last year I helped design the printed materials for a School Board Campaign.

Even before that, I began by getting a job at a print shop in college.  I wanted that job because I love office supplies (I still do),
but what I learned working there went far beyond pens and paper. I started working with people to create
wedding and party invitations, resumes and business cards, programs and presentations.

That was over 15 years ago.

And, over the years, from working with hundreds of people, I have learned:
• How much impact a well designed project can have.
• That the most important element of the design process is collaboration
• That what results from working together is more than a logo, or a brochure, or a flyer; 
it's the physical manifestation of your ideas.

And that's cool.

Why I do it

I started Spark Mountain Design because I love that as technology grows and evolves, our world gets smaller. I love that the reach of the internet inspires people to start their own businesses. I love that women all over the world are harnessing their own expertise and experience and using it to make a difference.

The thing that I love is making something that looks great.  It's thinking over how you can take a bunch of information and present it in a way that is eye-catching, digestible, and begs to be looked at again and again. Regardless of how simple, every piece deserves a little spark of awesome.
