About me
As a designer, every piece of work you see has been created to see change in the world we live in, to revolutionise the norm, and transform people’s perspective of the world. I dive into every area of design with attention to detail, specialising in: User Interface Design, Social Media strategy and Typography. During the 2 years I have spent working with a local charity I have managed the face of the brand, increased engagement in digital branding and used analytics on social and media outlets to alter posting and maximise participation of the brand. If you have a project in mind shoot me a message or email me at annadawson55@gmail.com :)

Map+ gives women several routes to choose from which have low risk of harassment, using a conjoined effort from police reports and Hollaback! Map+ would be secure

  • UniteRevolutionising the way we protest. Protesting is at the forefront of the 21st Century, every week it seems another protest is at the centre of the news, but one thing we fail to see is the environmental impact of these. Yes, even protests by environmental groups such as XR are having a negative impact on our planet. Placards, single use, wrongly disposed of placards, these need to be revolutionised and changed for the better. Unite allows you to create placards and divide the design up to indiv
