Hi, my name is Annie.

annie shengI was born in Shanghai and raised in Vancouver. From the moment I learned to hold a pencil, my parents enrolled me in art classes. Growing up, I always loved being creative and making things look pretty.

I’m a BCIT grad in 2 programs. After graduating with my Marketing Management diploma, I worked in sales and marketing for a major 4-star hotel and also for a software start-up. After doing that for 2 years, I realized being creative and making beautiful designs are what makes me happiest at my job. From there, I made the decision to enroll in the New Media Design & Web Development program at BCIT.

After graduating from New Media, I started working at Best Buy Canada – first as a production artist on the print team. I was tasked with building weekly and special campaign flyer pages, as well as store signage, from concept to completion. The following year, I was promoted to the digital team where I build corporate and vendor-funded digital newsletters and display ads.

Design and code are my passion, and getting to work with both in conjunction makes me the happiest. If you would like to chat about design or development, please reach out to me!
