Mandy Tensen


Mandy is a graphic designer and web developer with a passion for creating new things and making things work, with a specific affection for sparkles, code, and Internet memes. She studied Print and Web Design at the Minneapolis Community and Technical College and received her Bachelor’s Degree in English from the University of Minnesota.

Mandy prefers to work in a reclined position, buried under variously textured blankets, with immediate access to candy and snack options. She claims this allows for optimal aesthetic sensitivity and programmatic rigor. Mandy believes enthusiasm to be the most important element in any project and she strives to approach all things with wide-eyed wonder.

Ryan’s primary responsibilities include: color picking, keeping Mandy entertained, providing hugs & candy on an hourly basis, and predicting what someones singing voice sounds like at the beginning of a song.
