I am Annalisa, a passionate illustrator and visual designer from Milan, Italy. In 2013, I moved to Germany and after living in several cities I now reside in Hof.
Before moving to Hof, I got my M.A in Media Management and Information Design at the Merseburg University of Applied Sciences.
Besides my work for companies, I also run my Etsy shop Anneliesesmile. On Etsy, I sell my illustrations and zines about important issues close to my heart such as education, sustainability and many more!
You can contact me in one of these languages:
Italian, German, English and Spanish.
I work with companies, brands, NGOs, solo entrepreneurs, publishers and private persons.
Anneliesesmile is my Etsy shop´s name. The name Anneliesesmile was inspired by the thoughtful movie called Mona Lisa Smile with Julia Roberts. The movie is about the importance of education, of critical thinking and of the right to choose your own future, even though it is against societal expectations.
Education has always been important to me and I felt really connected to the movie. Moreover, my name is very similar to Mona Lisa and I thought, it was a good fit. I then decided to choose the German version of my name because after all these years living in Germany it has become my new home.
