Anna Thomas graduated with an Associates Degree in Visual Communications - Graphic Design from Northwest State Community College.
In January of 2020, Anna started her own business, Anna Rose Designs. Since then she has had multiple opportunities to build websites for businesses and organizations in the Northwest Ohio Region.
Anna has also worked with Northwest State Community College to create graphics and promotional materials. She also managed social media for the Village of Swanton and Impact419. Anna specializes in Front End Web Development, Social Media Management, and Graphic Design.
In the fall of 2019, I had the opportunity to work with a team that rebuilt the Northwest State Community College website. This was an exciting opportunity for me because I am passionate about Front End Web Development and I knew that his project would challenge me and help me to grow in many ways.
The process began with conducting interviews with future students and current students. As the process continued, we interviewed faculty and staff as well. Starting with a mockup created in Adobe XD the team began to create layouts based on information we gathered from our interviews.
Eventually we had created two layouts, these were presented to leadership and they decided they liked certain pieces of both layouts. Then the coding process began. We merged both of the layouts based on feedback we received and eventually had a draft of the website. We began user testing and received positive feedback through all of it. This project helped me grow immensely as a designer, developer, and a leader.
