Amanda Guerassio

Graphic Designer, Logo Designer & Brand Consultant

My superpower is translating the heart and soul of your business into stunning visuals. All of those intangible things like values, personality, and qualities you want your business to embody (i.e. your core brand)? I bring that to life in your visual branding, while making sure it appeals to your audience. The first impression you make on potential customers is usually a visual one - let's make sure you're saying what you want to say!

My no-nonsense design and branding services are aimed at helping you and your business find your best visual voice. I particularly love working within the following areas: food & beverage, creative, lifestyle, leisure, woman-owned, and progressive non-profit. Is that you? You're in the right place.

There’s no big firm or account managers to navigate through here. Every client works directly with me and only me. As a one-woman shop, I handle everything from our initial project discussion and quote, to the brand exploration, to the design work itself and the guided hand-off of your sparkly new files.I believe that pretty design and strategic design aren’t mutually exclusive. Well-thought-out branding (visual and otherwise) can start your business off on the right foot, or give it new life.

I believe family is important and that work-life balance is non-negotiable (I don’t work evenings of weekends). I believe in clear, to-the-point communication, and in sticking to deadlines. I also believe in providing the best design I can to my clients. Sometimes that means pushing back against an ill-considered idea, with design reasoning and alternate options- no sugar coating. I value clients who know the importance of design and trust in my expertise.

If all of that sounds like what you've been looking for, I can’t wait to hear from you!

Amanda did such an epic job on all of this, exceeding my expectations. There’s something amazing about having your brand professionally done. Give her a shout if you are interested in increasing your brand’s appeal and professionalism. She has taken Slackers to a whole new level and helped me understand my brand and business better than ever.

I was immediately comfortable with Amanda. Most importantly, she understood what I wanted and shared ideas for me to consider. It was great to have a professional help me think about what I might need. I know I asked a lot of questions about what she could design and then how I could use it. Every single question was answered! Amanda was OUTSTANDING to work with!

I have worked with Amanda multiple times on web design projects for my personal blog. She is thorough in explaining her approach and very knowledgable in her field: she’s great at breaking down the terms of what we needed to focus on and also highlights things that I didn’t think about or just maybe wasn’t aware of. She can explain things in layman’s terms to someone who’s not a designer, which is a tremendous asset to her and a big help to someone working with her, especially for the first time. Her work is top rate, she listens to my requests and concerns and takes those into consideration when producing work, and also makes suggestions on design that I often like more than my original vision for what I thought I wanted!

I’d highly recommend Amanda for any design project.

It’s hard to find someone outside of the company who cares enough to help create a vision and handle the important branding aspects of a design project. That’s what we needed, and Amanda was able to be that visionary for our company while working as a consultant. The project plan was laid out specifically and concisely, and she followed it, but was also able to be flexible where needed, researching and filling in the blanks around our ideas. I am very happy with her work for us and would easily recommend her services.

It's possible! While branding is my main focus, I do also work on projects like book covers and invitations or event pieces. Shoot me a message a with a few details and we'll go from there.  
Yes! In fact, I won't work without one. After you book, I put together our contract and send it to you for e-signing (digital signature). If you'd prefer to look it over before booking, not a problem, just send me a message. 
Via email, either as low-res PDFs or watermarked image files.
As a rule, no. You are paying for the finished product, not the working file. Much like at a restaurant where you pay for the finished meal, not the recipe and chef's tutorial. The exceptions to this are: logos (where I provide the vector file) or if I create some sort of template that you'll be editing/using on your own (not common).
