Interior designer Amanda Rinke started with Zerr Berg over six years ago, and in that time she and her team have accomplished an amazing portfolio of projects. “I am forever grateful that they took a chance on me back then,” she said. Amanda graduated from Art Institute in Minneapolis with a Bachelor’s in Interior Design. She currently lives in Fargo with her husband and their twin boys.
Amanda specializes in commercial interior design. She and her team work on a variety of projects including education, religious, community, multi-use and corporate. She and her team work closely with architects and general contractors on every project to ensure your vision is delivered to completion. “[My] job is to advocate for the design of the project, and to educate on product maintenance to ensure the longevity of the design,” she said.
As a Commercial Interior Designer, Amanda works closely with architects, engineers, and the owner. She includes services such as artwork and furniture, but she also designs and assists the architects with the entire interior of the project. This includes (but is not limited to) casework, interior features and any finishes and details you may see as soon as you enter the building. She also provides the drafting services for projects and is experienced in code compliance and understanding the constructability of spaces.
“[My goal] is to create spaces that will inspire creativity for years to come in this community”
Inspiration, Colors & Trends
When it comes to aesthetics and themes, Amanda loves the more traditional approach to modern design, or as she likes to call it, “Midwest Modern.” If she finds herself struggling with the more creative side of a project, Amanda will switch to the other side of her brain and spend time focusing on the more technical side of the project (i.e. detailing drawings). She also loves the Impressionist art movement and how each person has the ability to perceive art differently. Amanda’s ultimate goal with her design career is to “create spaces that will inspire creativity for years to come in this community
