Hi there! My name is Anna Maria, and I am a graphic and web designer focused on brand identity. I am based in Northern Virginia but work with clients across the United States and even abroad! I love helping brands on the local level tell their story and succeed in their communities.
I am a Southern California native and have happily called the East Coast my home since 2013. I graduated a year early from UC San Diego in 2013 with a B.A. in Human Development, but ended up pursuing a different career route after graduating. I spent most of my post-grad life in politics working in the U.S. Congress (House and Senate) and the non-profit and private sectors. My experience in Congress was pivotal since I discovered the Adobe Creative Cloud there.
After working in politics, I started my own business in 2016, seeing that the industry I was in didn't prioritize new technology and clean-cut design. My business revolves around positively impacting society through local-level branding and storytelling. The best part of my job is seeing my clients succeed with my help.
Currently, I am studying to become a front-end web developer to take my design skills to the next level. I am also a soprano/alto in my parish's choir and greatly enjoy being part of that music ministry. Through it, I have had the opportunity to sing at the Crypt Church at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
If you're interested in working together and think I might be a good fit for your branding needs, let's chat! Learn more about my services here.
