Illufox Design

About Me

I am Anja Allison, a Swiss-born multi-skilled web/graphic designer, developer and artist, based in Austin, Texas. I have a deep passion for functionality and aesthetics. I currently work as a Multimedia Designer for a CRM Startup.

My Story:

I grew up in a small town outside Zurich, Switzerland. I discovered my passion for art at a very early age due to my parents who both were very creative and passionate for art. I've learned mostly from my father, a successful Creative Director and talented artist, but I grew up influenced by graphic design, typography and creative advertising, and I was also part of some TV commercials and fashion shows.

Way before Illustrator and Photoshop, I grew a passion for airbrushing, and perfected my skills to the level where I was confident enough to display my works at a local art show.

Not being able to stretch my wings in Switzerland, I moved to the United States (which I had traveled to before), and bascially started my life from scratch. I worked my way up from a sales associate to assistant manager, to technical coordinator, Web/Graphic Designer, and finally Multimedia Designer.

In 2001 I graduated from the Art Instruction School with 4.0 grade average. In 2015 I graduated from Harvard's CS50: Introduction to Computer Science, and received a Certificate of Achievement.

I speak fluent German and English and have a huge passion for art, design, photography, writing music, and gaming on a variety of platforms.
