Third Street Welcomes Amanda Grable and Samantha Conway
Attention Agency Third Street has hired a new graphic designer, Amanda Grable, and a new social media manager, Samantha Conway.
“Eat. Sleep. Design. Repeat.” Is Amanda’s mantra. She has experience creating graphics for a variety of industries including Food, Fitness, Lifestyle, Creative, Real Estate, and Small Business. She enjoys all aspects of design from conceptualisation to final delivery and has a creative brain that’s constantly thinking about design and the latest trends.
Amanda, who started March 1st, has a passion for sketching and illustrating, and an unrelenting positive attitude. She will handle design and Illustration duties for clients SunFed Ranch, Edlong, and Parliament, as well as logo creation, iconography and website illustration.
“Amanda makes every brand we work with look better—from iconography to layout to typography, she brings a smart elegance to all her work,” said Third Street CCO David T. Jones. “And she’s about the nicest person I’ve ever come across in advertising. Perhaps too nice—we’ll have to try and make her a little meaner.”
Before joining Third Street, Amanda was a graphic designer/illustrator at House of Kin and a graphic designer/pre-press designer at Minuteman Press.
Born and raised in Chicago, Samantha Conway shines with the optimism of a Cubs fan, works with the ethic of a Sox fan, and hits restaurants with the appetite of a Bears fan.
She joins Third Street from Chicago-based 8 Hospitality, where she was marketing manager.
Her digital marketing expertise includes social media management for brands in the hospitality, food & beverage, retail, music, and special events categories. She increased consumer engagement and brand awareness at every turn.
“Samantha brings with her intuitive and unique social media skill sets,” said Phil Robinson, head of digital/partner. “Her experience and track record of success positions Third Street to further guide our partner brands’ social media efforts to best-in-class status.”
Her responsibilities include new business and helping Third Street clients make social media noise. Samantha began April 1st.
