ANJA VENN.

A slightly quirky, but highly professional
GRAPHIC DESIGNER 
& ENTREPRENEUR

Anja has over 15 years experience as a graphic designer across a wide range of industries. She managed the graphic design team at Groupon, which involved balancing the high demands of a start up, fostering high performance and employee satisfaction. During this time she also implemented processes to create more efficient work flow, saving time and resources. 

She gained experience in online retail branding, as the Co Founder of The Glasshouse Co. in Sydney, Australia which was featured in various leading Interior Design magazines and blogs. She designed the social media content for their Facebook and Instagram accounts, gaining many engaged followers.

 

Anja also gained experience in the event and hospitality industry, as one of the leading Event Managers and the in-house Graphic Designer at Maverick Venues in the U.K. This diverse role gave her valuable insight into stakeholder management, marketing and delivering exceptional customer service.

For the last 6 years, Anja has been working on design related start ups, whilst caring for her 2 children (Chloe aged 6 and Christian aged 5). She has also been running a printable craft business, Lemon Squeezy. Her limited edition Lemon Squeezy kits are for sale on Dinner Ladies, frequently selling out within a week of the new designs going live. The Lemon Squeezy Pinterest account she designed and manages, currently has over 75 000 visits per month, leading to a continuous flow of new customers.


She has been working as a freelance Graphic Designer for clients in various industries, from real estate agencies, executive coaches and networking groups to schools and day cares.
