Amy Witte RID, NCIDQ
With an eclectic background spanning from Walt Disney World to the White House, Amy Witte brings a unique perspective to our team. She relishes the chance to shape people’s experiences and interactions with their environments and has honed her skills through graphic design, interaction design, marketing, and interior design.
Over the course of her career, Amy has expanded her capacities with advanced degrees in both Public Affairs and Interior Design. While a graduate student at The University of Texas School of Architecture, she collaborated with the Gulf Coast DesignLab to design-build a bird blind for Camp Aranzazu, a facility that provides summer camp experiences for children with special needs. In her last year at UT Austin, Amy undertook original research into Smart Textiles for Interior Design, culminating in a published report and development of a prototype “thick threshold” that interacts with and responds to a person entering an interior space.
Her partner work focused on qualities and applications of bacterial cellulose for the Edible Materials Lab was featured in Texas Architect Magazine and at the 2015 Fusebox Festival. In 2018, she co-lead the IIDA Insight Bizarre Art award-winning team to create “The Wishing Tree,” an immersive architectural experience focused on shared reflection.
As an interior designer, Amy has worked on a range of commercial projects, including high-tech spaces, law and insurances offices and base building design. She enjoys all aspects of interiors, from furniture procurement to detailing reception desks, and from programming through close out.
