Anne Was Here
Anne Bollman began her career in architecture and interiors, where she designed spaces for corporate clients such as Live Nation Entertainment, The Recording Academy and Participant Media. She went on to be a lead designer for a large gift and stationery manufacturer and had her designs sold in stores such as Barnes & Noble, Papyrus and Pier 1 Imports. With these ten years of diverse corporate experience, Anne brings a thoughtful and fresh perspective to product design.
In 2014 Anne started her own studio, Anne Was Here, designing products with humor and style that are meant to make you smile. She is especially known for her illustrations of pets and her work is regularly featured on popular design blogs, such as Design Milk, and in printed publications, such as Uppercase Magazine. Today her designs can be found in retail stores worldwide on greetings, stationery, wall art, gifts, tableware, storage, bath, home decor, fabric, accessories, apparel, petware and more.
