Anita is the Marketing Chair for BarnRaise. While working at different companies as a visual communications and digital designer in Chicago, Anita discovered a great passion for gathering people's stories and making great design accessible to the community at large. Her clinching moment to jump into human-centered design happened while listening to the speakers at Design Research Conference 2012.
In order to give back, Anita is now building the BarnRaise experience through visual communication and networking. With half a year at ID under her belt, she is looking forward to learning more about design research and strategy, while, hopefully, developing scrumptious kid-friendly menus and becoming a bicycle commuter.
