Anne Ulku

About

Anne Ulku is an independent designer based in Minneapolis and specializing in many fields including illustration, art direction, lettering and type design, branding and identities, and art. She works within the commercial and advertising design worlds for brands such as Target, Nickelodeon, HP, Apple—as well as small to mid-range companies or start ups. She’s been featured, published, created and exhibited work for numerous local, national and international design shows, publications and clients.

As a dabbler of self-initiated and collaborative art and design projects, she’s constantly creating and experimenting with concept and craft, and always looking for the next place to travel.

*My website is currently a temporary mix of work samples, as I work on some expansive updates. Please reach out for a specific specialty sampling of work or with any questions—or check out various updates on my latest projects. Dribbble and Blog.
