About Anna

Welcome to the portfolio of Anna Samanamu, a multi-talented designer and artist based in New Jersey. As you explore my site, you will find a variety of creative pursuits, including graphic design, photography, videography, resource designs for special education classrooms, political campaigns, and more. Everything I do is fueled by my passion for creating work that sparks joy and inspires others. My work is not just about aesthetics, it is about the emotions and feelings it evokes in others. I am always eager to take on new projects, so if you’re interested in working together, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I would love to hear from you.
