Amanda

CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Amanda's love for design has been a driving force for the past two decades, tracing back to her early days in the magazine industry. Raised in England, her design journey began in London, where she kickstarted her career. Her path then led her to Sydney before settling in Queensland. It's been eight years since she founded the company, and since then, she's been on a journey to craft unforgettable logos and branding solutions.

The company, formerly known as Amanda Magill Design, recently rebranded to Amara Collective, a tribute to her twin daughters, Amelia and Samara. Now co-owned by Amanda and her husband Ryan, the name change not only signifies their partnership but also acknowledges the team's growth beyond Amanda's individual contributions.

While she first made her mark in magazines like House Beautiful, Cosmopolitan, Prevention, and Bride to Be, Amanda's passion has led her to explore a wide range of sectors. From health and beauty to essential oils, aromatherapy, weddings, art, and eco-conscious initiatives, she's had the pleasure of working with clients from all walks of life all over the world.
