About Ana

Anastasiia, or Ana as she is known to her friends, has taken one of the more unique paths to MDM 2016-17. One of the few international students in this year’s cohort, Ana has a global portfolio in management, art and design, one that most notably includes an international PR agency in her native Ukraine, as well as the world-renowned Smithsonian Institution in her loved “second home” of Washington, D.C., U.S.A. 

While working closely with creative teams and art directors, Ana experienced firsthand the impact of digital media and visual design on business and non-profit organizations. Now, her goal is to take her abilities to the next level. With her arrival in Toronto, Canada, Ana is well on her way in completing said goal via obtaining her Masters of Digital Media at Ryerson University.

Project Abstract


Colour-In Project: Colour Effects Education Through Technology

This project represents the research and analysis of the psychological impacts of colour, as well as discusses the importance of the awareness of such impacts. The theoretical rationale provides the context and details the plan for a proposed digital tool – a not-for-profit educational mobile iOS application Colour-In – that detects and measures colours from a supplied image, analyzes, and provides information about the psychological influence and significance of those colours. The overall goal of the project is to contribute to the field of colour effects education and improve the learning experience by integrating digital technologies into the educational process in various academic and professional practices.
