Shawn m. annis

Web Developer | UI/UX Designer


My name is Shawn Annis and I am a web and graphic designer living in Rochester, NY. 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.
