ACDowd Designs is a design studio in Sonoma County, California owned by Angela Dowd. Angela's work focuses on instructional design and information design in addition to traditional graphics and illustration.
Angela's instructional design work is based in the analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation (ADDIE) of instruction and materials. She studied instructional systems design and learning theory while completing the MA ed program at San Francisco State University in Instructional Technologies.
The principles of design and product development were the foundation of Angela's Industrial Design major at San Francisco State University (where she also received a BA). Her web design training was completed at Santa Rosa Junior College in Sonoma County, California (and continues).
Usability and accessibility are at the root of good design and something Angela continues learning about to improve the user experience. View an e-Portfolio to see additional instructional design projects.
