Anna Farrington has more than 20 years experience designing signage and wayfinding, environmental, and experiential graphics.
Anna’s primary goal as a designer has been to enhance the user’s experience through the seamless integration of graphics and wayfinding into the built environment. Understanding the psychology of the user group; be it student, patient, visitor, or benefactor, allows her to better understand their needs. Anna uses that understanding to provide the appropriate information or environmental queues at the correct moment in their experience. This approach makes every graphics program or sign system stronger and more successful.
With experience working on a broad range of project types, she enjoys the challenges unique to each task. She has a thorough knowledge of the skills required to design, program, implement, and manage a broad range of highly complex and intensely detailed projects. She is an organized and efficient project manager who communicates effectively with a broad range of clients, design professionals, vendors, and manufacturers, ensuring that the intent of each design is met.
Now working as an independent consultant, Anna’s experience includes extensive work as an Associate at Roll Barresi & Associates, and as both Graphics Department Manager and Lead Silkscreen Printer at Design Communications, Ltd., Boston. This background gives her a unique appreciation not only for the design finesse and wayfinding know how needed to create successful EGD programs, but also the logistical requirements needed to successfully implement them.
Anna’s areas of expertise include all phases of project work; Assessment and Recommendations Reports, Program Master Planning, Design Development, Public Process, Construction Documents, and Construction Administration.
Anna has a Fine Arts degree from Smith College. She recently renovated a 16’ Casita Travel Trailer into a small art studio. She is an avid photographer and loves to travel.
