Allie Armstrong is an art director/graphic designer recently relocated from Chicago to NYC because she loves cold weather. She's also good at jokes!
Allie earned her BFA from the School of Art and Design at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign in 2007. She has been recognized by AIGA 365, The Best of Ogilvy, Communication Arts and most recently received Silver and Bronze Clio awards for her work on the Steppenwolf Theater.
Allie has worked in the advertising biz for over 10 years and is well versed in the endless frustration of creative life that’s all made worthwhile by the heart-meltingly-wonderful feeling of a project she is proud of.
Outside of sitting in front of a computer screen, Allie enjoys spending time with other humans, traveling, reading books (physical and digital) and trying new foods. In her “free time”, she is also working on several custom typefaces. She's made it to "LMNOP" on most of the alphabets—but will one day make it to "Z"!
