This Becoming interview series began in 2019. We wanted to hear from women in different walks of life and how they were approaching creativity, career goals, and more–mostly the WHY and HOW beneath it all. It’s been amazing to conduct these interviews and get a “behind the scenes” look at so many inspirational women! You can see them all here.
Today I’m thrilled to share an interview with Amanda Jane Jones, someone I’m lucky to call a friend. I first met Amanda when we both lived in New York City interning–she as a graphic designer and me as an interior designer. She went on to become a freelance graphic designer and children’s book author and illustrator where she specializes in publication design (she’s the co-founder of Kinfolk Magazine) and in past years started “dabbling” in product designer. In this interview she described herself as “dabbling”. However, having watched her work over the past few years, I am confident that she is an incredibly talented and prolific designer.
During the last 15+ years she’s made a name for herself for her signature minimalistic design that is always perfectly executed from logos to book design to products. Follow her on
