Hello, my name is Ann Dao. I am a highly motivated, adaptable, and detail-oriented designer who excels in multiple disciplines - these include branding design, web + UI design, interactive design, packaging design, illustration, and print collateral.
Since childhood, I have always had a knack for freehand drawing and a strong inclinaton towards the arts. I constantly sketch and doodle - if I did not have a pencil and paper in hand, then I would simply trace the air with my fingers, creating an image from my imagination. Though it has been a long journey, these artistic tendencies have led me to where I am today. Long story short, I have completed a B.F.A. in Visual Communications from the University of Texas at Arlington, but that was after having completed both a B.S. in Biology and B.A. in Mathematics. Overall, art has always been my greatest passion, and pursuing fine arts and design has been one of the best decisions I have made.
To this date, I am an award-winning Graphic + Multimedia Designer with 9+ years of experience in both a freelance and in-house environment. I have been awarded the 2012 “Best of Show” Gold ADDY Award for my branding campaign design, titled The Bureau, and this project has also been selected for the 2011 UTA Senior Exhibition Show. I have also received the 2011 Outstanding Senior Award from the UTA Art + Art History Department, and I have been a selected finalist in the 2011 DSVC National Design Competition for one of my interactive designs, titled The Legend of Trương Chi and Mỵ Nương. Furthermore, I have designed for various companies and clients, some of which include Verizon, Oracle, the Health Insurance Marketplace, as well as small businesses and non-profit organizations.
Regarding platforms, I can work on both Mac and PC, and I code all web-related material using HTML5 and CSS3 compliant with W3C validation standards. My all-time favorite design tool is the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite - primarily InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, XD, Dreamweaver, and Animate.
During my free time, I enjoy watching Netflix, painting with watercolor and oil, playing tennis, listening to music, playing on my guitar and đàn tranh, traveling, and spending time with loved ones.
