Graphic Design & Illustration

Amy Knipschield

I have a B.F.A. in Fine Arts with an emphasis in printmaking. I’ve been a member of a printmaker cooperative and have done volunteer work for the arts but found myself making a living in the health insurance field. After taking some evening classes at Madison College for graphic design, I was soon in the Graphic Design and Illustration program. I still love working with fine art materials but even better is being able to incorporate elements of that into computer graphics and web design.

As designers we are explorers. We take on vast expeditions in lands of line, color, shape, texture, size, value, and space itself. Pushing boundaries to discover new territories. We are invigorated by the thought of uncharted waters, rising each day to seek new horizons.

We’re here now. What’s next?!
