MEET THE BUSINESS OWNER: Amanda Pratt
Hello! I’m Amanda (Mandi) Pratt, graphic designer and photographer for AP Design and Photo. I’ve been working professionally in the art field since 1995 (right after receiving my bachelor’s degree in graphic design) working in:
• outdoor advertising
• editorial design and production for a national weekly newspaper
• advertisements and specific marketing campaign materials for a non-profit company
• design and production of printed materials and stock photography for a benefits company
Over the past 10 years, I transitioned into freelance graphic design work assisting small companies such as:
• Long Beach Redevelopment Agency
• Long Beach Community Foundation
• Leader in Coverage Insurance
• Creative Benefits, Inc.
• Various small businesses, entrepreneurs and realtors
I like to keep things simple. Life goes by so quickly and we are all inundated by information hitting us from all sides – whether that be on the radio, on our televisions, over the internet… My art focuses on real life and true personalities getting a message across in a well communicated, clear style. I use alot of clean white space and simple designs that are pleasant and relaxing to look at rather than busy patterns and other distractions.
My husband, son and I like to be outdoors hiking, at the beach or at one of my son’s baseball games. Local farmer’s markets, spending time with my family (including one tabby cat and one lab mix) and of course, creating art are favorite activities! I am also the owner and photographer for Greyboy Pet Prints, a division of AP Design and Photo. Stop by our FaceBook page and see the latest Greyboy Pet Prints images!
