"Autobiography — Part 1." Amanda Roberts. 2010. 

I'm actually a baby sloth in a small pair of footed pajamas.

My name is Amanda Cochran (née Roberts). I am an art director currently residing in southeast Atlanta, Georgia. With equal experience as an agency-based graphic designer and corporate marketing art director, my design work mixes high-end creative thinking with pristine technical expression.

My work has been (kindly) described by colleagues as “on point, on brand, and ingeniously intuitive" with "a niche for kitsch.” I have earned my confidence as a designer through creative thinking and an unsinkable work ethic.

I graduated from SCAD in 2010 with a BFA in graphic design and art history. Since then, I have designed a wide range of brand-oriented visual solutions for clients like Nike, Interface, Coca-Cola, Mizuno, Cisco Systems, Solstice Sunglasses, Salesforce, Wells Fargo, and The PGA Tour.

My personal interests include Renaissance Anthropology, Choloepus hoffmanni, and musical theater. I was born and raised in Tifton, Georgia.

Recommendations and Reviews:

"I have known Amanda for years, and I have always been blown away by the quality of her work. She has repeatedly impressed me with her ability to create high quality creative work no matter the environment set before her. Amanda also possesses a directness that gets to the core of a projects needs so that time isn't wasted with vague guidelines that produce work the client doesn't want. She is about results, she is about having a positive experience, and she is about elevating the bar of professionalism and positivity in the creative world. "

JM Freeman, Client

 

"Working with Amanda is great. I've worked with her on several projects and she's always blown me away with her work (even when given seemingly impossible tasks). She knows how to ask the right questions to understand client needs but isn't afraid to speak up and bring innovative concepts to the table. She has an eye for beautiful design that's conceptual and clean. She's amazingly creative and professional, a joy to work with. Her passion and infectious personality come through everything she does."

M. Gordon, Account Manager

 

"Amanda is what I like to call a beautiful mind. Her ability to grasp the strategic underpinnings of an assignment are stellar. Combine that with a fantastic eye for design and then top it with strong writing and you have the whole package. Her wit and wisdom are that of someone far senior. She is a marketing teams designer dream!"
