Deanna Brigman is a Creative of many talents. For as long as she can remember she was an artist so she decided to earn a Bachelor of Science in Media Arts and Animation from the Art Institute of California - San Diego with Highest Honors.

Her natural curiosity, love of learning, and willingness to experiment were channeled into a career as a freelance artist where she learned the ins and outs of media production from a wide variety of clients. Her ability to learn quickly and distill information into easy to understand facts lead her to ScienceMedia, Inc which produces interactive training for industry leading pharmaceutical and healthcare companies. There, she used her strong organizational skills, personable demeanor, and multitasking abilities to guide the creative team as they worked on all aspects of the development pipeline.

At her most recent position as Multimedia Designer at Qualcomm, Inc. she broadened her skill set to include User Experience and Interaction Design. She collaborates across the tech giant’s departments to deliver top notch experiences across training materials, video content, website design, and communications.

Her current expertise includes the full Adobe Creative Cloud software suite, eLearning Software, Learning Management Systems, Graphic Design, User Experience, Accessibility, HTML/CSS, and Animation. She works in charcoal, ink, and has a weekly long form webcomic series.

Deanna has worked in the industry for 10 years and her drive to create means she constantly tries new things, from cooking, crocheting, to golf, and javascript.
