About Me

Hi! I'm Anna Western, a product designer with over a decade of experience crafting engaging, user-centered designs that are beautiful and simple to use.

Currently I'm the Chief Design Officer at Medcorder, a startup focused on enabling patients to record, share and discuss medical appointments with family.

I'm also the founder of Prism, a visual bookmarking app that makes it easy to organize and browse everything you want to remember online. It's free to use, and you can sign up here: www.tryprism.co


Previously I co-founded at startup called Slapdash (YC W2019). And prior to that I was a Product Designer at Facebook for 4+ years designing the tools used by employees on a daily basis, such as Tasks, Calendar, Diffs, Search, Wiki and more. As the first designer, I helped build the productivity tools design team.


Before Facebook, I consulted with my own clients and studios in San Francisco such as Hot Studio, Adaptive Path, Punchcut, Hydrant and Design Map.


I got my start in UI/UX designer at Moment Design in New York where I worked with clients such as Tiffany & Co., Disney, Pfizer and ESPN. Prior to that I earned a B.F.A. in Art Direction from Pratt Institute.
