Denika Anderson is a theologian-turned-designer who has an affinity for Swiss International design, Pantone books, and cheese. She was going to be a theology professor, but finds herself immersed in the field of graphic and web design with a heaping dose of existential angst.
Denika holds a B.A. in Biblical and Theological Studies from Bethel University (2012), with minors in Greek and Biblical Languages, and an M.A. in Women’s Studies in Religion from United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities (2015).
Though her professional experience in design dates back to 2011, she has been studying the field since she was a child. She has always had a love for color, and has been writing since she was five years old. She taught herself to code HTML when she was 11. From there, she learned photoediting, layout design, typeface design, and branding while she pursued her grade school and undergraduate education.
Currently, Denika works for an association management company providing for various nonprofits’ communications needs, but she has worked in educational institutions, nonprofits, small businesses, and freelance. She has become a Jill-of-all-trades, so to speak, in the communications field and is always eager to learn a new skill.
Denika has been married to her husband, Ned, for six years, and together they have a two-year-old daughter, Lola. They live in New Brighton, Minnesota, where they enjoy going on walks, British TV shows, and nerdy board games.
