Photography Andrew McDade

Born in CA, 1991

2009-2013 Studied at CSU, Chico 

Ciao! My name is Amanda Papapietro and I am a graduate of the graphic design program at California State University, Chico. I have been interested in art my entire life, so it was an easy decision to become a graphic design major. As well as design, I also attain a minor in health and wellness. 

During my time at Chico State I have interned with Tehama Group Communications, which is a student run PR agency through California State University, Chico. I have gained experience working one on one with clients as well as working with other team members. Getting a feel for branding and logo design has reinforced my choice of  career path. 

I have also interned at Trinchero Family Estates in Napa, California as a Graphic Designer on the packaging team. Working hands on with the Creative Service team I have gained skills in package design, mechanicals, as well as an immense amount of knowledge about wine!
 
Design, fashion, photography, crafting and just being creative are things I enjoy on a daily basis. I currently work at EPIC Insurance as one of their graphic designers. My work consists of creating custom guides for clients, building info graphics to represent and break down content heavy documents, Ads and fliers for specific events as well as re-branding company documents. My goal is to continuously grow as a designer and contribute to something bigger than myself. I am an outgoing person who enjoys working in teams to come together to achieve a common goal.
