Meet CID: Ann Cooper


Anyone who’s ever spent time in an agency knows that no two creative projects are alike. Each one presents our team with new challenges, which is why we’re so fortunate to have a creative force like Ann Cooper at the helm of our Design Team! 

As our Senior Art Director, Ann has had a hand in countless design projects that have come through CID’s doors over the past 30 years. She is instrumental not only because she uses her own creative prowess to deliver groundbreaking work to our clients and internal teams, but also because of her ability to help others think outside of the box and embrace new approaches to the unique problems that only great design work can solve.

Get to know Ann! 


Q: How would you describe your role at CID?

A: For over 30 years, my role has been to lead or support any design project that comes my way. I use my experience and creativity to help our company and our clients achieve successful outcomes.

Q: What is something that you wish everyone knew about your role, your work, or your team? 

A: As far as the team goes, we all play our part and support each others’ efforts. There are so many moving parts in any one project, so it takes a village! Pocket Pal Handbook

Q: Do you have any advice for those in similar roles or anyone new to the industry?

A: For newcomers, sit down and read "Pocket Pal," the graphic arts production handbook. It's full of old-school knowledge that you will find yourself using every day.

Q: Give us the inside scoop. How is life as a CIDer? What aspects of our work and/or our culture do you enjoy? 

A: What I have always cherished about the culture at CID is that you [employees] feel like part of a family.

Q: Who do you draw inspiration from? Do you have any professional mentors or personal heroes you’d like to shout out? 

A: When I am in a rut or just want to see what's trending, I research what other designers are up to. For me, Muzli has been a good source of inspiration! 

Q: What is a mantra, motto, catchphrase, or personal code that motivates and inspires you? 

A: As far as work mantras go, "ask questions” is my go-to. Your colleagues are your best resources and more often than not, they’re willing to teach or share their wisdom.


Hear that sound? It’s the LIGHTNING ROUND! Don’t think! Just answer! 


Q: What’s your favorite season?

A: Summer

Q: Karaoke or Dancing? 

A: Dancing

Q: Sweet or Sour?

A: Sweet

Q: Dream travel destination?

A: Tuscany

Q: HOT TAKE: Name a font that should never see the light of day again. 

A: Papyrus! (As seen in one of the best SNL spoofs EVER!)
