From My Clients

I presented the wines to some distributors in Upstate NY and they bought it all. How’s that?!
— Russell Joy, President, General Manager - Joya Wine Company | Sonoma, California
Amy is a talented graphic designer with strong visual instincts and experience in a wide range of projects. Amy’s skills go beyond visual design elements, however. Her ability to understand how a project fits into broader goals allows her to create materials that are beautiful and also truly work for the client.
— Kara Brunzell, Napa County Landmarks
Rebranding our company was an unattained goal for years. Amy simplified this overwhelming process; provided multiple creative and original options; and facilitated a complete brand overhaul. From Campus Signage and Color Selection to Business Cards and Stationary, Amy led us through the design process and delivered a distinctive and memorable new brand. Thank you, Amy!
— Christopher Tibbits, Vice President, RSA+

Amy Linn | Graphic Designer

All the little details.

Amy has always been a stickler for detail and has an unfading flair for style and design.

I'm inspired by architecture, the written word and letter forms. Papers, fabrics, and color influence everything I do. Music, whether old or new, sets the mood when I'm designing and motivates me. I enjoy good foods, appreciate different cultures and believe that exploring and learning something new is key.
In regards to my work, I love a challenge and happiness is solving a problem with good design AND having a happy client.

History.

I graduated from California State University, Chico with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Design with an emphasis in Graphic Design.
Before graduation, I began an internship at Colonna Farrell Design, which is now known as CF NAPA. I designed my first wine label that summer and truly fell in love with wine country and all it has to offer.
After graduating, I was hired full time at Colonna Farrell Design and continued to design wine labels, cartons, bottle shapes, capsules, corks, collateral materials and more for global wine names such as Beringer, Domaine Chandon, Nobilo, New Zealand, Marwood, Italy, King Estate, Kenwood, Bacio Divino, Edmeades, Jarvis, Pezzi King, Elliott, Fife, Napa Valley Mustard, Lockwood, Lorane Valley,  Hamilton Estate, Raymond, Rustridge, Wine World Estates, Jordan Vineyards, Chappellet, Gloria Ferrer and more.

Linn Design Studio.

Since opening Linn Design Studio in 1997, I've enjoyed helping businesses build strong brands through identity development, naming, logo design, wine label design, website design and collateral design. Check out my graphic design portfolio, packaging portfolio, logo portfolio and design case studies.

I GET the big picture and love working with my clients to help them refine their message and build upon it.
