Hi, my name is Ana Bitter. I am currently in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at UH Mānoa and will be finishing the other requirements for my degree next year. Design has given me the opportunity to combine my love for the visual arts with my communication skills and desire for efficiency and functionality in day-to-day life. Having grown up on the Big Island and attended university on O‘ahu, I have developed an appreciation for different environments and have observed types of communication and design needs unique to different communities. I also have experience working with words and enjoy generating and collaborating with others on written content.

Design has allowed me to develop my interests in history, photography and the fine arts, as well as discover and explore new subjects. When I’m not designing, I love to travel, exploring museums and finding new places to eat. But nothing can beat a quiet afternoon with a dog and a good book.
