Hi! I’m Amanda Batchelor, an experienced graphic designer from Victoria, BC. My clients count on me to put their best face forward, be it a brand, a message, an organization or product to present to the world.
At Paper Panda Creative, I work out of my home studio in a renovated 100-year-old house. My family is environmentally conscious and we’re early adopters of electric vehicles. We have upgraded our home to include several eco-friendly features including a grid-tied solar array on the roof of our garage, so on sunny days my studio runs on solar power!
I got my start as a junior typesetter in a local print shop alongside my first graphic design boss who gave me a great foundation in best practices in the print industry. Working closely with clients, press operators and staff at the print shop was a valuable education that I continue to draw upon and appreciate today.
In 2001, I joined the Art Department at Thrifty Foods. There, I was able to build my skill set and learn best practices in print and digital design for a wide variety of applications. My team produced the weekly flyer using a template I designed to maximize efficiency and consistency while freeing up the design team to be able to focus on creativity and presentation.
I am now working full-time at Buckerfield’s Head Office as Marketing Manager, so I am only supporting my existing clients at this time.
