Anna Spisak became a designer by accident. She began her career by lucking into arguably the coolest job in the world, a.k.a. working as an experience designer at Andculture a digital and experience design agency, upon graduating from Susquehanna University, where she studied communications and studio art. Immediately prior to beginning at MICA, Anna worked as a design strategy consultant for technology startups.
As a designer, Anna is invested in exploring the relationships and intersections among: civic innovation, community organizing, education reform, skills-based learning, technology + new media, fostering entrepreneurship, storytelling, making Design accessible to the general population, and the ever-evolving role of designers in contributing to a sustainable social economy. Anna is not nearly as long-winded, intensely nerdy and rambling as the aforementioned list may suggest. (Just kidding—she totally is.)
