I am a creative / designer who intuitively understands how to design into any Industry, Client or User-need. With a perfect blend of right-and left-brained activity, I am a natural at transforming user and client needs into a user-friendly visual expression.
For design inspiration, I follow Yang Liu of Berlin, and the SF and NYC MoMA to stay connected to new / political / thinking / raw / expressive art. For UX/UI inspiration I follow the work of UX Awards and Works & Co.
"Nothing happens in a straight line. Especially not life."
My life as a commercial artist/designer started with both internal and external recognition, in spite of a non-traditional opening. Inspired by the authors Elizabeth Gilbert (“Eat, Pray, Love”), and Lidia Yuknavitch (“The Misfit’s Manifesto” TEDTalks.com), and their teachings about unconventional life-paths, my design-journey continues on a Curve, following the next creative and intellectual challenge, believing in the value of staying uncomfortable, and be led by inspiration and expression.
Please read about my process for each portfolio piece. Each gallery item contains an expandable inside page which explains my creative and technical process.
"I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for a student of mine, Anne Hunsicker. I have known Anne for the past year, as she had taken the course title Concept Development that I teach at The AICA of Pittsburgh Online. I have had the opportunity to observe her participation and interaction in class and to evaluate Anne’s knowledge and ability to design not only graphics, but a point-of-purchase counter top display structure as well. Her command of type, color, and creative concepts were excellent, and she seemed to effortlessly create the appropriate perception for her client. She is well equipped to grow from challenges and critiques. Anne is professional, courteous, and personable. She is an outstanding student in all respects, and I recommend her without reservation."— Mary Clare, FTF | Graphic Design, The Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online

"I had the privilege to work with Anne during my time as a Print Manager for E.L. Reinhardt Company, related to a packaging project for PLS Group Inc., while Anne’s role as a Print & Web Designer for Tell MFG. I was intrigued by the creativity in Anne’s designs and was impressed with her pleasant mannerism and professional approach. Anne’s demeanor is thoughtful, attentive, calm and friendly, even under the most stressful of circumstances and always maintained the most professional demeanor. She takes time to gather facts, insuring she is reacting to all facts and not partial data, and thus produces consistent, high-quality results. I worked with Anne on for months on many projects for creating multiple packaging products. Anne was always very timely with completion of her work, always ahead of schedule. I highly recommend Anne Hunsicker’s talent and expertise, as an individual and as a professional. Anne will be a great asset for any organization that she will choose to be her next workplace."— Timothy Stemig, Minnesota House of Representatives
