I’m an Illustrator & Designer
I’ve designed hundreds of product that has been seen at stores like Toys R Us, Party City + the NASA Gift Shop — in a company that was short-staffed with tight deadlines.

Why working with me will give you Peace of Mind?
★ You’ll get your design on time. No hassles.
I get the pressure you’re under. When I was an in-house designer to a top US personalized company, I designed multiple product lines, such as mugs, bowls, sippy cups, etc.
Product Lines are big undertakings – having more then a hundred different product designs.
A snag in production meant missed shipping — which meant missing out on possible $ales at big box stores over a three-day weekend…
…oohh, just writing this, I’m starting to sweat, remembering being in the trenches again…
I communicate very clearly to prevent time and money being wasted.
★ Designs for a variety of markets.
I have designs that appeal to kid’s giftware, vintage scrapbooking and kitchenware. One of my favorite things to review are Sales Reports. It gives a great sense of what designs that sell have in common:
- They stand out: Bold Color & Contrast can be seen from across the store.
- It’s clear who it’s for: For example, they are either very girly or very boyish – designs that cater to a broad spectrum sell, but not as well.
- Simpler vs. busy: For objects without a surface pattern, a central image is easier to focus on.
★ Flexibility. Get quick changes for your designs.
Designs are built digitally, in layered files for maximum flexibility to be reformatted to any product. If you prefer daily or weekly progress reports, communicating via email/phone/Skype — it’s all about what works best for you.
What people I’ve worked with say about my Service:
“Anna is one of the most creative artists I have worked with in my 35 years of being involved in product development…
Very often my projects had to be created on a rush basis – she never failed to deliver quality designs in spite of the time pressure.
She is extremely easy to work with.
I would highly recommend Anna to anyone who needs creativity and timely delivery!”
–Diantha Currier, Owner of DC Sales, Former John Hinde National Sales Rep
“Anna is an exceptional designer, illustrator, creator.
Her talents are endless & she can illustrate virtually anything.
She has a wonderful personality and takes direction well, though rarely needs it.
I highly recommend Anna Measures, she is a true treasure.
– Terri Beard, Co-Owner at For Season Gifts, Former John Hinde Creative Director
★ Do you know what I felt was the #1 thing about being an in-house designer?
The long-term project collaboration. That’s why when I take on a project, I approach it as a life-long partnership.
If I don’t feel we’re the right fit, I’ll recommend someone who may be a better match for you.

More about Me:
For about a year, I attended an International Boarding School in Thailand. Complete with ties & Harry Potter-ish uniforms. (It was based on the British system)
It was next door to a farm & I’d wake up to monkeys howling and peacocks crowing at dawn. I have an extensive collection of stationary & stickers. I’ve cut down a lot. Especially after watching a Hoarders marathon.
I LOVE this show, it’s like a warning from my future self.
For the past couple of months, I’ve been making a go at being a vegetarian. The last hurdle is seafood – it’s been a challenge to resist my Mom’s Pad Thai with shrimp.
The most influential part of growing up was travel. I got lost in the Lourve, saw huge religious complexes like the Vatican and Angkor Wat, climbed the Great Wall of China, sketched the gold-leaf murals of Thailand. Seeing such beautiful things influenced me to pursue creativity. A BIG bucket list moment was when I went to Hello Kitty Land in Tokyo. The whole world is Eye Candy!
Next, I’d love to go visit the State Museum in Russia & Ganges Festival in India. Experiencing such diverse places helps me design in a variety of styles.
