Amanda Harper hails from an advertising background and has been with Gould Evans for almost 10 years. In her second year at Gould Evans, she along with a co-worker, dreamed up Canary: a boutique multidisciplinary graphics, branding and interiors practice within Gould Evans. Since 2008, Amanda has been a vital part of the inception and evolution of Canary, growing it from a staff of two to a staff of 14.
Influenced by her love of color, the handmade and passion to explore, Amanda Harper brings this multi-disciplinary and outside perspective to all phases of a project, from programming to design and construction administration. Her experience spans a wide range of project types and sizes, including crafting business models, brand development and programming, signage and wayfinding, dining and restaurant spaces, corporate headquarters, parks, athletic facilities, collegiate projects, justice facilities and multi-family residential. She believes that design should not only be nimble and holistic, but a tool to solve any business challenge.
