Amanda Jozaitis (Heise) lives in La Porte, Indiana, a suburb of Chicago, located right under Lake Michigan. Jozaitis is a Graphic Designer at The Grossbauer Group, a Chicago integrated marketing agency, and previously worked as a graphic designer at Royal & Langnickel, an international art and beauty product company based in Munster, Indiana. Outside of her work as a graphic designer, Jozaitis established a small printmaking studio in her home and has been steadily creating and showing prints in solo and group shows.
“For me, MIAD was an endurance test. I pushed myself in so many ways to develop the style of art and design that I am continuously working on today. I proved to myself with the help of the faculty and staff that anything was attainable as long as I worked hard. Through MIAD’s Career Services Office and the professional artist course I took senior year, I started believing that I don’t have to be a “starving artist” but that with dedication fine arts is a viable career.”
