Anne Pace

Art Director

Our eyes. Anne tells us what looks good. Then she makes it so. A graphic designer who makes InDesign poetry—whether lyrical or slam, depending on clients’ needs. She comes to us rigorously trained from the School of Visual Arts with time then spent on the boards at New Jersey and New York City agencies before we lucked into her skills and talents here in Vermont.
