About the speaker

Amy Ginn is a creative director, illustrator, and occasional dreamer who believes that experimentation and imagination are key to problem-solving. Her approach and enthusiasm for all things design have brought her career success but it has also brought happiness in her everyday living. She’s always on the hunt for new mediums and finds enjoyment in her rogue design process.

Amy started from humble beginnings in Oklahoma then moved west to Southern California to work for Felt Bicycles. The sunny weather was too perfect so she packed up to Chicago to eventually work for SRAM. She is now an Associate Creative Director at Arc Worldwide out of Leo Burnett. The frozen tundra has brought her challenges but she admits her creative muscles have found new strength.

If she’s not reading a stack of neuroscience books, filming a funny short, watching the same Netflix historical documentary for the eighth time, or riding bikes, she’s sketching on napkins trying to illustrate the ideas that are swimming around in her mind. She’s also got a white belt in Jiu Jitsu. Not confirmed whether this is beneficial just yet.
