BA Visual Communication, ND Graphic Design, PD UX Design, GNVQ Art & Design

I transform problems into elegant solutions through user research, prototyping, validation and UX, UI & Interaction design.

I am a creative individual who enjoys working in lots of different mediums both digital and old school. My studies started off in Art and Design and then progressed onto Graphic Design and later Visual Communication. I have always had a great interest in branding, advertising and User Experience Design, I especially enjoy sorting out a mess of information and bad UI and turning it into a great user experience.

As a person, I’m friendly with a good sense of humour and find it easy to get along with people.

Head of Web Design and Development

Media Heroes is a web design and online marketing agency working mainly with small to medium businesses but also with some large blue chip clients. I came to work at Media Heroes when I was selected to move to Australia to head up the web design and development department whilst working for The Creare Group, Media Heroes sister company in the Uk.

Notable clients that I have worked on include Far Pavillions, Luggage Direct, Dixon Homes, BiteSmart and Nat Cook (Olympic volleyball player).

One KPI for the entire department is up-sell’s, these are additional sales made in the process of working with customers to assess their needs and the performance of their website. I have been the consistent top performer for up selling within the business, bringing in an additional $ value each a month. This is due to my attentive customer management and genuine investment in their websites success.

“It’s rare that you come across standout talent like Anna. She is talented in both the creative and technical side of web development.”

May 2008 – August 2010

Lead Web Designer and Developer

As a lead web designer I managed a team of web designers and front end developers. I was responsible for planning workflows, ensuring deadlines, targets and training team members.

As the most senior member of the team I also designed and developed websites mainly for small to medium businesses and online stores. Development was primarily HTML, CSS, jQuery, PHP, Wordpress and Magento based.

"Anna’s ability to manage and complete multiple projects under pressure was inspiring – she’s able to take command of a group of web developers and work on her own projects effortlessly."
