Hi there! My name is Aneta Baran, and I am a UI/UX designer in Chicago, Illinois. I am interested in designing for interactions between users and interfaces, particularly as it relates to topics such as learning and creative identity.
I currently attend DePaul University working towards a combined degree in Interactive and Social Media and a M.S. in Human Computer Interaction. Fulfilling minors in Graphic Design and Information Technology have allowed me to create an understanding of both sides of the creation of a product: as a designer and a developer.
When not focusing on design work or research, I can often be found watching television programs and drawing, often at the same time. I am a big fan of international programming, particularly of Japanese anime. When I'm not doing either of these, I delve into my other interests: dancing, learning languages (or at least attempting to), reading novels, and more.
