Annie Lee Carroll is a Taiwanese American designer from Chicago, Illinois. She is fluent in both Mandarin and English. At a young age, she taught herself how to draw and paint, later translating her skills into digital design. She recently graduated from DePaul University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design.

Since 2018, Annie has worked three jobs while also balancing school, marathon-training, boxing, community involvement and many other activities. She has shown her work in many events, such as Chicago’s Chinatown Fair, The Chicago Howard Chalk Fest, and Haibayo’s Argyle Activation Festival. Her work is also currently displayed in DePaul’s APIDA (Asian Pacific Islander Desi American) Center and Side Practice Coffee in Ravenswood. While she is a hard-working creator, designing will never be seen as work to her. It is a way for her to express herself, and connect with her community.

Currently, Annie is working part-time as a Junior Art Director at Published Studios. She is also working as a Junior Designer for the SaveMoneySaveLife Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Vic Mensa and Laundi Keepseagle that is focused on using the arts to build community in Chicago. She is also freelancing on the side, doing work for clients such as CodePink, Now and Later, Adidas, DePaul University and more. She hopes to continue working on projects that challenge her to expand her style as a designer, and grow her passion for community-building and the arts.
