maker of pretty things & weird ideas

Hi there! I’m annie, a midwest graphic designer based in sunny san diego.


here’s the rundown…

I'm a SoCal transplant from the Midwest who's a sucker for a good pair of shoes & a box of donuts. I make pretty things for a living & enjoy good eats, pups & adventures. 

So here it is, just a slice of my paradise. Feel free to check out my work, follow along on my escapades & connect through social media. Wanna chat more or better yet– work together? I'm all about new friends & connections!  Contact me & let's have some fun. 


I graduated from Ball State University in May 2013 with a degree in Journalism Graphics. Visual storytelling is my foundation, but throughout my career I've worked in other areas as well to enhance my overall skills. From graphic design & illustration to creating marketing collateral & branding for events, I've been able to expand my practices & use them together to create beautiful results. Oh, and I also pupsit on the side, because who doesn’t love a good pup snuggle every now and then?
