Ana is a professional graphic designer with a master’s degree in graphic arts and more then five years of experience. She has been active with all kinds of new media, but her major focus has been in animation and video. She is not an expert in front-end development, but she has a good understanding of how it works and is able to keep it in mind when designing and communicate effectively with developers.
Modern web animation technology has matured significantly. However, designers should tread carefully and only add animation to a website if it meaningfully enhances the user experience.

shows commitment to diversity in tech by mentoring a General Assembly student every
