About Anne Bacinski
Anne's design chops were forged by 25 years promoting Alaskan products and services. She’s honed her craft elbow-to-elbow with the state's most talented advertising professionals, including teams in agencies, newspapers, print shops, government agencies and Native corporations. She currently serves as Interactive Chair of the Alaska Chapter of AIGA (formerly American Institute of Graphic Arts, now The Professional Association for Design).
Anne latched onto graphic design as a kid, and never wavered from pursuing it as a career. After graduating with honors from CSU Long Beach, she headed to Alaska for a short adventure. She quickly put down roots, making the state her lifelong home.
In 1995, Anne traded suburban Los Angeles for a cabin on the Kenai Peninsula. It was there that she pushed limits of comfort and adventure, chopping wood for heat and carrying water from town. Even in semi-rural Homer, she continued building skills as a graphic designer, first at the local newspaper, later transitioning to freelance work. Her clients range from B&B owners to the presigious Pratt Museum. In 2001, she traded her cabin on the Peninsula for a mid-century modern home in suburban Anchorage.
Anne currently balances a thriving freelance business at Spin.Space with her passion for Alaska’s wilder side. When time allows, she trades pixels for paddles. Anne is an enthusiastic world traveler and sea kayaker. Her “happy place” is jigging for halibut from a kayak somewhere off the Kenai Peninsula.
Just two years ago, Anne learned to ice skate, transitioning to Nordic skates, long straight blades that let her fly over ice. In winter, she can be found shaking off deadlines by doing laps at Anchorage’s Cuddy Park, one of only five long-track speed skating rinks in the nation. Her skating is still a bit shaky but the speed always puts a smile on her face. She’s looking forward to expanding her 2017 nordic skating season onto Southcentral Alaska’s frozen rivers.
