Lady sings Design: Nena Anderson
Once in a while we find a designer who exudes talent in 360-degrees! We found Nena and not only discovered a highly sophisticated visual designer in 2-D and 3-D, but a drop-dead blues and jazz musician as well. This powerhouse lady sings print design, trade show displays and product design from mountain biking to sea-side sandals to down-town swing ... it's all about talent!
