I joined Anaconda in 2015 as a designer on the marketing team. The teams commitment to open source and growing user base meant a growing startup. From logo design and print design to management, I worked to increase the visibility of their technology.  My time here was on a team with designers like Laurel Twist and Alex Cady

Print Materials

From cheat sheets to white paper, I worked with different team members and departments to get content ready for input, design, review, and production.  

White papers were often used for demand generation campaigns. Above is one of several white papers that I designed and laid out. View the full pdf.

Technical documentation and community are important so there were many cheat sheets made. View the latest conda cheat sheet.  

 

Slide Creation

With a company full of thought leaders and thinkers it was important that the deck made was flexible, clean, and easy to use.

I sent out a survey to our company and talked with those that had to present slides to come up with a list of slides that would be most beneficial.  

The slide template was then made for both keynote and powerpoint. 

 

Open Source Logos

Anaconda incubates a few open source projects. I created logos for a couple that were growing in popularity and use.

Organization & Documentation

After being at Anaconda for some time I started to better organize and manage documents and design process. From spreadsheets to to-do's, I worked with the team to be transparent and manage our work. 

I created and updated the Design Trello board for keeping task organized for myself and the team

When the company renamed there were several documents that needed to be updated, created, and archived. I created a document to keep the team updated on the ever changing documents. 

A fan of quick links and documentation. I took note of and tried to surface the reasoning behind file management so those that new people to the team could get a better understanding of how we work. 

Spreadsheets are a simple way to keep track of work and not every sheet has to be boring. ;)
