About Me

I’m Annika (she/they gender pronouns). I’m an art director, designer, and poet based in Brooklyn, New York. I’m currently making magic as the Head of Brand Design of Ethel’s Club, the first social and wellness club designed for people of color. I create brand images that stand for vibrancy, memorability, and that authentically engage with culture. My clients include Samsung, MTV, Intel, HP, Jaguar Land Rover, alongside dozens of Hip-Hop, Neo-Soul and Poetry artists across the country.

My passion is creating work that centers joy, social impact, and authentic energy..

As a poet, my writing centers on healing, liberation, and ancestry. As a human, you can find me creating Funk playlists, looking for vegan dumplings, and philosophizing over the best Tribe Called Quest album (currently - I stand by Midnight Marauders).

I’m glad you’re here. Let’s make some magic.


I’m moved to explore culture across art, DESIGN, and social impact


Let’s chat, create, or milly rock.
