Hi there! My name is Amanda, and I am the owner of Benincasa Design®. This is me and my handsome hubby pictured below :) We recently got married (November 2015) and are now living happily ever after in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada with our Ragdoll kitten Nutella. I love art, makeup, fashion, music and cat videos, and he loves basketball and video games. We are both huge foodies too!

The company name may seem like just another typical "named-after-oneself" business, but it's very personal to me and has meaning; Benincasa, which is my maiden name, translates to "good in home" in Italian - and that is exactly what I like to provide to my clients: good (no, great!) in-house design.

As the Sole Proprietor of Benincasa Design, I decided to start my own business over 6 years ago as just a young woman with very specific goals, and I can say that with a lot of help and encouragement along the way, I have gained a mound of experience, especially in the 4 years since receiving my Diploma in Graphic Design at Durham College in 2013. Within just a few years, a lot can change in life; jobs, living situations, and even energy levels! I have had the privilege of learning from quite a few veterans of Graphic Design throughout my Freelancing experiences in various offices and industries, and I have also been able to work with an awesome variety of clients  (brides and grooms, event planners, photographers, makeup artists, and more).

As I continue to grow in this fast moving world of art, design, and advertising, it is my desire to continue to offer unmatched service that adds great results to your businesses. I have many times received feedback from ones I've worked with showing their appreciation for my dedication to their projects, my communication skills, and even sometimes sleepless nights on both parts for quick turnaround!

You can be sure that I will spend hours surfing Social Media and the Internet to keep up to date with what's popular in the design worlds, whether that be art, fashion, interior decoration, wedding and event planning, etc. I work with a number of wonderful vendors and suppliers to ensure that the final products are exactly how I would want them to be if I was my own client.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know more about Benincasa Design - I can't wait to work with you! Contact me here.
