AUBURN UNIVERSITY

Anna describes herself as an emotional creature who has a strong passion for human relationships and all life on the planet. Growing up, she gravitated toward those ideas — and to art. She is thankful that graphic design connects those two dots for her. She believes good design is based on an understanding of human behavior — wants, needs, and passions. It depends on an ability to understand the rules, but also a willingness to break them. She credits the continuous love and support of her family, friends and fiancé for helping her pursue the career of her dreams. She strives to remain curious, to continue learning and to work toward understanding people while making an effort to a put a smile on their faces.
