Shawn m. annis
Web Developer | UI/UX Designer
My name is Shawn Annis and I am a web developer and graphic designer. I am an artist, a photographer, a graphic designer, a web developer, and an all around maker of things. I specialize in web and app design, front end development, user experience, and creating identities and branding. I make the internet beautiful.
One of the greatest strengths about being a designer with a computer science background is that not only can I handle the graphical aspects of any project, but I can also fully understand, participate and even lead the technical aspects of those same projects.
