Anne Pennypacker is the Founder and Sole Proprietor of Anne Pennypacker's RYPE Ideas. She began the freelancing business to better serve the needs of friends and family with her photography, design, marketing and illustrative skills and to feed her creative side – which is the only side she really seems to have.
Anne was born and raised in Maine and came to California at age 5, where she promptly became a proud California resident for life. She received her BA in Art History at UCLA and a minor in Anthropology. She returned to the Bay Area, and began utilizing evening fine arts classes at College of Marin and California College of the Arts, and practiced photography for 8 years, while working in Administration and Marketing for several Bay Area companies and organizations such as Kagin’s, Inc., Palace Press International and the Marin Symphony.
Working in marketing eventually led Anne to design, where she began to learn about the importance of knowing professional layout in the workplace. In 2009, Anne returned to school, to Santa Rosa Junior College to receive a certificate in their Graphic Design program. Since then, Anne has added Design services to her freelance company and has designed for such figures and companies as: Steve Kinsey, Top Agent Network, City of Novato, Novato Theater, Merci Beaucoup Cakes, Island Glow, Veer Left, Attaway Business Consulting and Pennypacker Drake Home Building. She now resides in Northern Marin, where she enjoys hiking, biking and wine tasting!
Anne believes in maintaining a balance of utility and recreation with her creative outlet – so while utilizing design, photography and marketing for growing companies in need, she also enjoys doing her own personal photography, art and illustration in her free time, which she continually exhibits throughout the Bay Area, throughout the year.
