About Me

My name is Anny, and I am a web & graphic designer. In May 2023, I graduated from Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) with an Associate of Applied Business Degree in Visual Communication Design with a concentration in Web and Interactive Media. I have maintained a 4.0 GPA and am proud to have been awarded the Dean’s List Certificate for the Fall semesters of 2021 and 2022. This motivated me to continue striving for academic success. 

During my academic journey, I acquired skills in HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, Cinema 4D, Figma, and Adobe Creative Cloud software including Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, XD, and After Effects. I was part of a project developing a website in WordPress for the Highland Heights Green Task Force. This project helped to build teamwork and communication. I also took part in a project to create a WordPress portfolio site for the creative arts department of Cuyahoga Community College. 

Within the past year, I worked as a web designer for some small businesses needing a new website. I gained experience in Wix and Squarespace and enhanced my skills in WordPress. While working with these small businesses, I learned to work independently, manage my time, and organize my work.

About My Logo

You might wonder about the disparity between my domain name, Hebaragi Designs, and my Sunflower Designs logo. There’s a story and idea behind my logo. I took inspiration from the Korean name stamp, known as a dohjang. This stamp is used to authenticate important documents, much like a signature. It is also commonly found as a signature on artwork. The dohjang stamp comes in various shapes but it is most commonly seen in a square shape. Since sunflowers are my favorite flower, I incorporated them into my logo. The dohjang concept influenced me to design my logo with the outline of a sunflower, with Korean words in the center translating to “Sunflower.” The logo is circular, but I also wanted to honor the traditional square shape, so I formed the center writing into a square shape. It is read in the left-to-right direction.
