Bio

I’m Annika πŸ‘‹πŸΎ . I’m an art director and designer across product, UI, brand & web. I create products, brands and content centered in play, joy, and care. My work has been featured by It’s Nice That, AIGA Eye on Design, Creative Mornings, and others. I’m currently Head of Design across product and brand at Somewhere Good, an audio platform for community conversations that launched April 2022 for U.S. iOS users. I’ve worked with incredible teams at Ethel’s Club, MTV, Samsung, Intel, HP, Jaguar Land Rover, and others. As a designer and art director with UX research and strategy roots, I help brands and teams deeply understand the story they want to tell and ask how the design can move from a space of intention, care, and play. From there, I design meaningful products and brands that are culturally-forward, accessible, and delightful. I believe design and tech hold the possibility to be tool for creating futures that disengage from domination. My design and tech values are rooted in exploring: radical social media, tech and design futures, designing for care & community, digital gardens, accessible design, Black internet culture & online archives, design and Black queer futurity, decolonized design, slow tech, communal dreaming, and more. I’m currently creating in Brooklyn, NY. Get to know me more at my website.Reach out my way at annikaizora@gmail.com 🌈
