Amy Fox

American graphic designer, sculptor, and painter. Growing up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Morla was introduced to the rich culture of New York City at an early age, seeing the Andy Warhol exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum, visiting many museums, and drawing from her own Spanish heritage, quickly gaining an appreciation for culture and the arts. Morla enjoyed drawing and went on to study art at the University of Hartford, West Hartford, CT, in the early 1970s, at the height of the conceptual art movement. Morla learnt the tenets of conceptual art at Hartford, and while this did not give her the opportunity to improve her drawing skills as she expected, it taught her to illustrate concept without image. Sensing that her skills lay in the field of graphic design, she transferred to Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, where she obtained a BFA in Graphic Design. After graduation she accepted a job in the late 1970s as senior designer for KQED, San Francisco’s Public Broadcasting System (PBS) Station; a job that taught her to work with sound and motion and to stay within a limited budget. She left KQED to work as an art director at Levi-Strauss & Company, where she learnt the art of communicating the design process to co-workers who did not necessarily understand design or the design process. It was a skill Morla found useful when she began working with clients in her own company....
