Amie now serves clients by offering identity and logo design, branding, print design, and Web design through a balance of insightful creative vision and strategic thinking. She partners with small businesses as a resource for efforts in continuously developing and growing their brands.
Amie Baker is a graphic designer, entrepreneur, and mother of two based in Washington State. After graduating from the Seattle Art Institute in graphic design, she held a range of in-house positions, where she enjoyed managing a wide range of projects that supported the brands while clearly communicating the goals of each brand's marketing efforts. She gained an understanding of the reach of marketing, from the simple touches of a business card through the complex information compiled in a sales presentation, and how all of those things work together. She drew on this foundation when launching her business, Amie Baker Creative, in 2010.

Multi edition, featured designer for branding and design projects.
Have a look behind the curtain on one of my client's re-brands. See where they started and how we finalize their logo design.
Do you need on-going design support? Often times, my retainer clients will grow enough to hire an employee and that is such a success for us both! Your turn!
I partner with clients who have retained my services on a monthly basis for ongoing work.
DESIGN = LOUDER THAN WORDS
Working with a personable designer, one on one with
access to an entire network of pros has many benefits!
I work with highly-driven and passionate businesses motivated to be bigger in their business. I help them design and manage simple design needs all the way through to complex, multi-piece marketing strategies all while keeping their brand reflective of their business and market.
Branding and relationships! Most of my client work is done remotely and it takes a focused and motivated professional to care for your business needs. I have been thanked countless times from my clients for being a reliable business partner after they share hair-pulling stories of failed design projects from other sources. My business is my reputation and I care greatly about it.
I have ran my own business for 6 years now. I started it in order to stay home with my first born and I have never looked back since. Prior to my own business, I held a variety of in-house design positions exposing me a to great range of marketing and design projects.
My retainer clients get the best of both worlds! They can focus on what they are best at while I tend to the branding needs otherwise holding them back. If you find you have on-going needs, you might consider discussing this option for the best fit. You'll receive priority scheduling, a guaranteed amount of hours, and assurance that your designs are complimentary to one another.
I only accept a limited number of projects each month. One reason is so that I can commit to all the steps from start to finish that makes your project and brand successful. I guard my time in order to guard your brand.
I am a deadline focused designer. If you have a specific date pressuring you, let me know and we can build back milestones to ensure we meet your requirements. If you don't have a specific deadline, we'll build in a time frame for completion.
“I received Amie Baker’s contact information through a co-worker who recommended Amie due to her quick turnaround time and open communication. Little did Amie know that I would be throwing a ton of work her way and with tight deadlines. Not only did Amie complete these projects on time but her designs were so well received within the office that I started using her as my primary graphic artist. In my profession, product management, a lot of artwork is needed: packaging design, sell sheets, website design, label design, textile design…the list can go on and on. So, it is a given that I have had a lot experience working with various artists. With most artists I act as creative director, but with Amie I stepped back and let Amie “work her magic” as I like to tell her. She is a breath of fresh air in this industry as she is professional, has great visual aesthetic and understands what a client is looking for. Her open communication regarding time constraints or concerns with projects really makes Amie my favorite artist to work with. I hope to be working with Amie for as long as she will have me as a client." | Eli Resnik - Combined Resources International.

"Beyond being a creative and talented graphic designer, Amie is an absolute joy to work with. She is professional, courteous, patient and collaborative.
