ABOUT ME

A small introduction about my self

Annie Marten

Visual Designer from Redmond, WA

I'm a multidisciplinary designer seeking opportunities to create and collaborate. The challenge of finding a balance between functionality and visual appeal motivates me. I'm especially passionate about animation and how movement can tell a story.

When not hard at work, I've been known to use my free time dabbling in sewing, dance, and getting lost in the woods. I'm also a big fan of movies, cartoons, and a cat named ZuZu.
