Joanna has a B.F.A in Film & Television from Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, where she developed a strong foundation in film production and animation. With After Effects as her super power, she hustled as a Motion Graphics Animator and Compositor for 5 years in New York City, juggling both production companies by day (such as 321Launch, Hornet, Spot Creative, etc) and freelance projects by night.
She spent the next 2 years in Los Angeles, at first as a freelance motion graphics animator at the advertising agency TBWA\Media Arts Lab. Soon after, she founded her own production company, Chromatica, a brand inspired by music and motion design, with a portfolio of music videos, lyrics videos, and more. Here, she bring her clients through the entire process of production – from concept to deliverable.
She currently works at the Apple Headquarters in Cupertino, where she utilizes her skills in design, motion graphics, visual effects, and now prototyping, while continuing to grow with exciting and evolving Silicon Valley.

Above par communication, responsiveness, reliability and dedication to the project. Joanna is an extremely accommodating professional in the creative industry, willing to take curveballs with us as a team and understanding the big picture goals of the project. Joanna is is awesome, lovely to work with, intuitive about design, and solution oriented.
We were on a tight deadline with a big bid and needed someone committed with a very short notice to crunch a treatment design for us. We worked with Joanna at Chromatica and were able to send out a beautifully designed treatment despite the short notice. We especially appreciated the commitment and hard work that was put in. It's a key when things need to happen fast without compromising the quality. If you need a talented, hardworking graphic designer, you should go with Joanna.
We had a very rough idea of the sort of GFX we needed and Joanna helped us fully realize and expand upon our ideas with clarity and precision. She worked extremely fast and with a great deal of creativity.
