Amanda Fox is the Senior Designer at Troika Studio in St. Augustine. “Designing posters probably tops my list of favorite things to design, however, I don’t do it frequently”, she says.
“I chose The Fix by Minus the Bear to base my design off of. It’s a quirky, feel-good song about a summer hook-up. It is more relevant to previous summers of mine, but I had just learned the song last summer and it made me reminisce about a lot of good memories.”
“I listened to the song over and over, read the lyrics several times and ultimately made a decision based on the way the song made me feel - like grabbing a boy, jumping in the nearest pool and making out. That’s essentially what the song is about and that is what I illustrated. I love music, illustrating and designing posters, so the Poster Show was the perfect opportunity for me to show off what I do best.”
Amanda concludes, “I’m looking forward to this year’s show as well!”
