Amy Nicole Schwartz is a designer specializing in interaction, branding and illustration. She is currently the Creative Director at Cards Against Humanity. She is also the founder of Liminal Space, a design initiative that promotes experimentation, community, and dialogue within Chicago’s thriving design, art, and technology scenes.

She is the winner of AIGA’s Command X 2015 live design competition and was also named one of AIGA NY’s Fresh Blood 2014.

Before working at Cards Against Humanity, Amy worked for several agencies and start ups, including gravitytank, dscout, Bright Bright Great, and Leo Burnett Detroit. As an active freelancer, her clients have included the Google and Cranbrook Art Museum.
