MagicLinks

YouTube vloggers use MagicLinks to create click revenue. The links are evergreen and follow the product, not the merchant. I designed the mobile and desktop product user interface and reports as one of the core startup members. This is the brainchild of the fabulous team that developed Chippmunk.

Chippmunk

A coupon search engine site that I redesigned when the original designer ran off to Mexico when the Mayan calendar ended. The site is no longer maintained. In my redesign I modernized the look of the site and created a visual heirarchy for the information dense pages. This and MagicLinks were built with the same fabulous team and were wonderful projects to be a part of.

About

This portfolio is the work of Anna Donlin who is best described as a technically skilled art director. Anna knows how to build what she designs—this sets her apart from most art directors. She is a designer with the pragmatism of a developer. Anna knows what knobs to turn to tweek technology into captivating designs.

Anna is a student of creativity and how insights reveals themselves. In this pursuit she has learned that travel is a huge influencer of creative insight. Be it across town or overseas, getting oneself in a new environment aids the mind to make new connections. Discovering this helped explain how living overseas in Amsterdam, Cracow, Berlin, and Rio, and adapting to these foreign cultures and languages developed Anna's own creativity.

Previous jobs at Yahoo! Search Marketing, TripAdvisor, Virtual Tourist, Internet Brands, Archimation, and The Berliner Morgenpost also influenced Anna's design aesthetic. And as the Chair Surfrider South Bay and and Excutive Committee member of Surfrider West LA / Malibu Anna gained powerful experience managing and organizing amazing volunteers and events.

Currently Anna is collaborating with Westside Websites—building things in ASP.NET Core MVC using Visual Studio Community, and tracking the process with GitHub. She has also bought and renovated properties she now long-term and vacation rents. This entrepreneurial experience has had a lasting influence on Anna's design aesthetic and work ethic.
