Welcome to my portfolio website! My name is Anna Larson, and I am a student at Freestyle Academy. Freestyle Academy of Communication Arts and Technology (usually shortened to "Freestyle Academy") is a design school in Mountain View, California. Juniors and seniors at Los Altos High School and Mountain View High School that enroll in Freestyle Academy take their core STEM classes at their normal schools, but they take English, Design, and an elective media class at Freestlyle. My elective class is Digital Media, meaning that I learn web design and audio engineering. The English class at Freestyle Academy is very similar to a normal school's English class, but the projects we start in English class are often finished using skills learned in the other two classes. In Design class, we use programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator as we learn design concepts and apply them to photography and other design projects. In Digital Media, we use programs such as Pro Tools, Adobe Animate, and Adobe Dreamweaver to create media such as voice-overs, animations, and music, and we then compile all of our projects into one portfolio website per unit.
The images below are linked to each of my unit portfolio websites. There are four units in each year, and two years spent at Freestyle, making a total of eight websites. Each unit has a different focus, and the websites showcase the projects I completed during those units.
