Drew Palmer

Drew Palmer

Designer + Entrepreneur

I’m a freelancer designer and creative consultant based in Philadelphia, the land of the cheesesteak and brotherly love.

Being labeled a “creative” at an early age caused me to spend a lifetime trying to figure out what it means. It has enabled me to develop a vast perspective on the world. I’ve held jobs at some of the world’s leading marketing agencies and consultancies as a creative professional… but somehow never felt quite at home.

Several years ago, my ceaseless desire for creative freedom in my lifestyle led me to consider freelancing as a full time career. The transition was hard, but doing so has truly changed my life. In the first year, I doubled my income, grew my network, and filled my portfolio with passion projects from around the world.

Freelancing has truly changed my life for the better… and I’ve made it my goal to help others do the same.

Designer & Illustrator

Hi! Amanda here. I’m a graphic designer, illustrator, and artist currently living in Wellington, New Zealand. I love creating drawings and other fun visual stuff for all sorts of awesome people and brands.

While I’ve been freelancing for nearly five years, I transitioned to full-time in March ’15. I’ve learned tons so far and am passionate about sharing my experiences to help and encourage others.

Freelancing can be an amazing option for folks who want to do work they truly enjoy and live a full and free life. My love for this topic runs deep, and I can’t wait to connect with you.

Some of my clients have included Tara Stiles, Danielle LaPorte, Kelty, and Steph Jagger. My work has been featured by Darling Magazine, Clementine Daily, Greenpeace, and more.
