HI, I'M AMY

I am an independent graphic artist based in the Denver area. My practice encompasses all aspects of the design process, from Art Direction through Production. My clients span the United States and include small agencies, a large university, a small publishing company, an engineering firm in the Washington D.C. area, as well as numerous small to mid-size businesses.

I love to take a body of information and make it easier to understand. I craft marketing pieces into strong extensions of your identity that deliver a powerful message with a visual punch. I will treat your brand with respect and study your identity standards until I “get” you. Color, shape, texture, space, typography, balance, hierarchy and proportion are the foundation of my practice and I conscientiously apply them with each decision. I believe in making each piece something special.

I OFFER...

ABOUT ME

AMY BROKAW

AMY BROKAW

ART DIRECTOR

I have over 16 years of experience and expert-level skills with Adobe Creative Suite. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Fine Art Degree with an emphasis in Graphic Design. I also studied typography at the London School of Communications and User-Focused Web Design at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design.

I have been independent for over three years and have had long-term contracts with Intelligent Demand, Encore Events and Wells & Associates.  Prior to going free-lance, I spent time developing and maintaining data-intensive websites and publications for Forte Information, created transportation-focused art for UrbanTrans Consultants, developed national and international mass marketing materials for Valassis, and briefly managed the art department for Message Makers of Lansing, Michigan.

Some personal thoughts on what I do…

As a visual problem solver, I tame the elements of visual communication and make them talk, dance and sing. Design is my life. I am energized by the changing landscape of digital marketing and excited each day I sit down to work. My personal motto is, “If you bold everything, nothing stands out.”
