partner with aml

Anne Marie’s nimble approach is ideal for groups and individuals who think that their organization could benefit from design, but don’t have the capacity to independently manage a complex project or hire a full-time employee.

There are loads of ways to work with Anne Marie. Here’s one example of a long-term partnership ↓

about aml

Hi, I'm Anne Marie (she/her). I grew up in Newport News, VA, and then planted one foot in college radio and another in video production at Florida State. After spending a few years in the NYC media scene where I produced content for Slate and Eater, I went through a broad-strokes grad program at Pratt to expand beyond video toward strategy/creative direction. Things started to click after that. I moved to Philly and began working with organizations on every aspect of their communications. The wider lens and more immersive projects quickly revealed how limitations in budget and capacity can hamper growth. I’ve since devoted my time to figuring out how to make it easier for people to manage the marketing themselves.

Outside of work, I’m a big proponent of not working. I spend most of my free time experimenting in other areas of design, but I also play and watch lots of women’s/non-binary soccer and am always on the lookout for people to chat with about the USWNT and NWSL.

UWCM 211 Helpline Project

The United Way 211 Helpline is a free, 24/7 service that connects callers in Central Maryland with food, housing, utility assistance, childcare, and other resources. Listening to recordings of the calls clearly reveals the commitment that UWCM holds to providing what’s needed, where it’s needed, when it’s needed. To aid in their campaign to raise awareness and support for this important behind-the scenes work, UWCM asked Anne Marie to create a series of videos using the audio from the calls. She developed a visual identity for the series that’s rooted in atmospheric imagery and pared-down type design. The treatment resulted in an emotional, immersive video that grounded viewers in the caller’s circumstances while ensuring that the conversation between operator and caller was easy to follow.
