Hello, my name is Annette Allen,
middle name Elizabeth. 

With an illustration degree and design training through internships, I’ve developed two distinct skillsets and an adjustable perspective on projects and teams.

I'm also one of those weirdos who lists "organizing" as a hobby on trivia cards. But it lends itself well to research and efficiency, whether for creative projects, streamlining team workflows, or helping implement new technology systems.

Ultimately, what I care about most is collaborating with kind people, making good work for good reasons, and being better today than I was yesterday. I'm currently doing so as a senior graphic designer at The Hatcher Group.

When I'm not working or creating, you can usually find me:

  • Tending to my houseplants and garden
  • Petting the neighborhood cats and admiring birds
  • Cooking, ordering or thinking about food
  • Sunday deep cleaning with a podcast deep dive
