Prior to MICA, Anne Marie was a Strategic Communications consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton in Washington, DC for five years. With a Bachelors Degree in Communications and a double minor in Business and Fine Art from Simmons College, Anne Marie was eager to be immersed in the creative process in her work, leading her to apply to MICA’s Post Baccalaureate in Graphic Design in 2012. From there she joined the ranks of MASD, and is now working on her thesis to create better access and tools for healthy living in disinvested neighborhoods in Baltimore.
Anne Marie’s work explores the role of the designer in society. She simultaneously wears the hats of change-maker, innovator and facilitator. As an advocate of a human-centered approach to problem solving, she believes the process is just as important, if not more so, than the output. Together with her passion for branding and digital storytelling, she applies the tools of design thinking to gain insights in order to reach audiences in new and thoughtful ways.
