Amber Giles

“Another logo! I was contacted by a friend of a friend about a month ago because she was in need of a logo for her podcast “A is for Adversity.” Jen gave me an idea of what her podcast was about and what colors she was looking for and then asked me to use my creativity to create an identity for it. It was a fun, creative process and I am grateful for the opportunity I had to bring her logo to life! Jenifer Banks’ podcast is awesome and she gives a great perspective on topics like overcoming adversity, the importance of venerability, gratitude and understanding. Go check it out wherever you get your podcasts!”
