About

A product line designed with the spirit of adventure in mind.

Hey there! I'm Amy - the Amy behind "amyventures!" I'm a NJ / NYC based graphic designer and photographer with an unquenchable thirst for adventure, a love for the outdoors, and a deep passion for environmental sustainability. I started developing "amyventures" in 2014 shortly after graduating from college as an Instagram account. It's become a visual journal of sorts where I share snapshots of my colorful view of the world - one that evokes wanderlust, wonder, and whimsy. This is my exploration of how I can translate that view of the world into product design.

In 2016, I released my first t-shirt and enamel pin designs. 2017 was a creative dry spell year where I released no new products. 2018 was the year I feel like I really struck gold. I started collecting trash and plastic off of beaches I frequent and launched my beach plastic greeting card line (in time for the holiday season)! I look forward to exploring this new and exciting medium. (More card designs SOON!) I hope that you'll join me for the journey. :)
