Amanda graduated from MacEwan University’s Design and Illustration program before founding Curio Studio (as Woodward Design) in 2002. She has since guided it to become one of Edmonton’s most recognized graphic design firms. While she directs and designs everything from ad campaigns to visual identities, her passion for illustration is often woven into her ideas. Her work has appeared in numerous publications, been exhibited in New York’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and, in 2010, Amanda was awarded a spot in Avenue Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40. When she isn't creating, she can be found happily eating, playing the accordion or hangin' with her friends at the GDC. Currently, she is acting president of the GDC Alberta North Chapter.
