About Amy

Amy N. Thomas

I'm a passionate designer with 19 years of experience in interface, print, and web design. I love to make things look, work, and act more efficiently. Some might call it compulsion...I like to call it passion.

I started my professional career as a Visual Designer at IBM for the Storage Systems Group. My work at IBM involved close interaction with our user experience designers. The team I was on developed a software interface to help facilitiate storage administrators in monitoring their storage subsystems. We create an interface that allowed the admin to see storage system status at a glance using a drill down table as well as custom built icons. I also had the pleasure of building several internal websites, as well as helping to build and design the Visual Design team's website.

During my career at IBM, I also began doing freelance work. My freelance work centered much less around interface design and more around print and web work. I've enjoyed freelance work as a way to really explore the limits of my creativity and my skillset. I've done projects ranging from app interface development, to posterboard presentations, to website redesigns and logo creation.

In March 2008, I began my career at Stanford University School of Medicine. I started as a Temporary Visual Arts Specialist. In November 2010 I was hired on full time as the Web & Graphic Designer for the Department of Radiology.

My work at Stanford is very gratifying. I never expected, as an artist, to have my work matter in a way that could help other people. With each new project, I am (in a small way) contributing to the research and development of new and innovative treatments for many of the most damaging diseases. My art helps the great minds of our department explain their thinking, their research, and their findings to others in their field.

My mind and heart are always open to challenging design problems. I thrive on finding innovative solutions to complex situations.
