Anne is a graphic designer on our Creative Services team with more than 20 years of experience working in collaborative, creative, and fast-paced environments.
Prior to joining Blue Beyond, Anne worked for a variety of large CPG companies as their in-house graphic designer. She led a team of graphic designers and was responsible for overseeing and coordinating projects while partnering closely with the Brand Marketing Director. Being a part of many collaborative environments gave Anne extensive experience engaging with brand teams, procurement, commercialization, and print vendors. She learned how to work with diverse teams toward a common goal, and strengthened her problem solving and project management skills. Anne is also known for jumping at opportunities to train and mentor junior designers and even took on a teaching role for a semester, and still volunteers to review portfolios a couple times a year. She enjoys the rewarding feeling of inspiring peers and students.
Anne has received numerous awards for technical printing of product packaging and holds a BFA with a major in Graphic Design from Ball State University.
I have a tremendous amount of experience to share with the Blue Beyond team from my 20+ years in collaborative creative working environments. I feel lucky to have worked with so many talented individuals that have helped me develop into who I am today, whether it be providing insights into my own strengths or taking the time to share their knowledge with me.
Creating design solutions that my clients are ecstatic about.
Fall. I love the more moderate colors, the drier weather, and leaves changing color. It is always such a welcome reprieve from summer.
How does that make you feel? I like to ask this question to colleagues to de-escalate stressful or frustrating work situations.
Pushing myself outside of my comfort zone by accepting a teaching position. I found it incredibly rewarding and I learned so much from my students. It was terrifying, but it has given me so much confidence in public speaking and managing people. I loved teaching at Ivy Tech; fostering a collaborative classroom and helping students develop their skills was deeply rewarding for me, and I found working in an academic environment challenging and invigorating.
Being in a positive work culture after being in a work environment that wasn’t so. It allowed me to grow and develop skillsets and strengths that I was unaware I had.
Being outside in nature away from crowds of people. It helps me feel centered. I also love being surrounded by plants and animals. Despite hiking through some of the same areas on a regular basis, there is always something different if you pay close attention – plants blooming or a different bird species. I love catching those brief interactions. They make my day.
I’m torn between hiking the Appalachian Trail or touring Europe on my bicycle. Both situations warrant camping every night and traveling.
