I’m Amber, a graphic designer and illustrator in Ottawa, Ontario.

I’m a creative with a tiny obsession with tea and hippos. When I’m not busy, you can usually find me on the couch surrounded by my cats and tonnes of blankets… don’t though; that would be creepy.

Expertises

Graphic Design

I’m a graduate of the Graphic Design – Visual Communication program at Fleming College. There, I learned the fundamentals of Adobe and developed various other skills. These skills include branding, layout design and copywriting.

Marketing (future)

Currently, I’m a student of the Advertising and Marketing Communications Management Program at Algonquin College. Although these skills are still new, they continue to develop everyday.

Illustration

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved to draw. Whether it’s breakfast not wanting to wake up or an avocado, I enjoy drawing and illustrating new concepts.
