About me

Hello, I'm Ana! I am a Romanian graphic designer currently based in San Francisco, graduate of the Academy of Art University. As long as I can remember I have been involved in art in one form or another. In Romania I attended a High School for the arts where I studied fine art. I always knew that I enjoyed the artistic process but it wasn’t until I was exposed to the vast world of graphic design that I found my passion. It is the challenge of creating a clean and simple design that catches the eye and informs the viewer in a short amount of time that I enjoy the most. Graphic design should speak to the viewer not shout at them; it should invite them to be a part of an experience, not just a mere bystander. As industrial designer Dieter Rams stated: "Good Design Is as Little Design as Possible: Less, but better – because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity."
