AMANDA CHEUNG. Born and raised in San Francisco. Graduated UC Davis with a Bachelor of Arts in Design: Visual Communications and a minor in Psychology. Dog lover, especially for my dog, Snoozie. Aspiring to become the most amazing designer!
I was inspired to go into the field of design from the encouragement of my fourth grade teacher, who submitted my art pieces to museums. From then on, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the creative field. I have taken many courses involving photography, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe AfterEffects, TextWrangler, as well as hands-on art classes.
My first professional design experience began at UC Davis. As a graphics designer of the UC Davis Theatre and Dance publicity department, I have created flyers, programs, email newsletters, lobby displays, backdrops, etc for the department productions. I am currently a contractor with a visual design title at Salesforce Developer Marketing, Boutique Envy, and Live Sushi/Breakfast at Tiffany's. At Salesforce, I participated in the designs for huge technology conferences: Dreamforce, Connections, Lightning Developer Week, Summer of Hacks, TrailheaDX, etc. Along with another designer on the team, I created the assets for events, web and print, promotional items, and even illustrated designs and characters for Trailhead. As a graphic designer, executive assistant, and marketing administrator at Live Sushi and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, I designed and created logos, gift certificates, PowerPoint presentations, menus, and templates for my client. As the executive graphic designer at Boutique Envy, I created their website banners, logo, posters, business cards and much more. My skills as a designer has grown tremendously throughout the years, especially with my experience at Salesforce.
The experiences that I have garnered throughout the years have tremendously expanded my skills and creativity as a designer and I am confident that I can be a valuable asset to any future company.
