about-grid

Hi there! I'm Amanda, a product designer based in Austin, Texas.

I’ve always admired how thoughtful design has the power to change our world. Whether it’s through simplifying one interaction, improving team processes to increase productivity, or finding new ways to organize the kitchen pantry, I love solving big and small problems.

While my first love is visual design, my superpower is that I see pattern where others see chaos. I love to simplify complexity and find alternative ways to tackle creative and technical challenges. I'm passionate about leading teams, mentoring designers, and evolving design systems. I also love learning new things! After hours, you can find me in drum lessons or learning React.

By day, I work on building the future of computing, IBM Quantum. I've built tools for quantum developers, reimagined the IBM Quantum visual identity, and created an award-winning educational game. I currently lead two efforts to simplify our developer experience and evolve our design system. It’s been exciting to use design and data to help build a brand new business.

I appreciate you taking the time to look through my site, which has just a slice of my work. If you’d like to see more, or talk through something in more detail, I’d love to take you through my process over the phone or in person.
