Becky Ankeny, Graphic Designer
With over 22 years of experience as a graphic designer, Becky Ankeny has been involved with all aspects of the design process from concept to final printed product. Her specialties include branding, print collateral, custom packaging, book design, and environmental graphics. One of her highlights as an employee of Glyphics was helping with art direction, graphic design and illustration for eight interactive exhibits at Halle Heart Children’s Museum, a remodel for the American Heart Association in Tempe, Arizona. Another successful project, while working in the marketing dept. at the Valley of the Sun JCC, was implementing the National J brand into all marketing materials and environment signage. This also included art direction of the new website and redesigning the program guide, both of which won Hermes Creative Awards for best design in 2017.
Thoughtful research and creative thinking are important design steps Becky takes to ensure the end product is special and unique but also functional and relevant. Coupled with her own fine art and hand lettering, and love for specialty print techniques such as embossing or custom die-cuts, she displays a handmade style that is becoming lost in this digital age. Becky’s humble nature, playful personality, quiet enthusiasm and desire to do good in the world makes her an incredible team player.
