Hi, I’m the new designRoom intern, Anna Richard.
I’m a Kent State graduate with a BFA in Visual Communication Design, specializing in typography and typeface design. I don’t have a favorite font, but if I had to pick one, it’d be Greta Mono.
In fact, I’m also working for Google this summer, fixing typefaces in the GoogleFonts library. When I’m not working, I’m usually reading, playing Skyrim, or working on my own typeface, Pocket.
I kind of stumbled into design as a compromise between my creative side and my more analytical side. I enjoy being a designer because it lets me use both to solve problems. It also means I get to buy beautiful books about design and count it as a work expense. Which is awesome.
As a Cleveland native, I’m excited to work at a design firm with a long history here in the city. After I got this position, I found out my uncle’s clock shop was actually next door to the old designRoom offices, and he and Kelly knew each other. It was fun to find that new connection.
