Anna Schnitzler 

Hi! I'm Anna Schnitzler, the banana behind Sassy Banana Design Co. I'm delighted that you've found your way here. My stationery business started as a way to stay connected with loved ones through illustrated greeting cards. It's my passion to share my work with you and foster connection through each card. 

Long story, short: I'm originally from New Orleans, LA born and raised. In 2008 I left NOLA to attend art school at SCAD in Savannah, GA (BFA Illustration, 2012). There, I met met my now-husband Ian as well as some dear lifelong friends who now live across the country. Many of our family members live in different area codes as well. Mail correspondence made a home in my heart as a way to keep in touch with loved ones while we moved from Savannah to St. Petersburg, FL, before settling back here in New Orleans.

Sassy Banana Design Co. took on a life of its own in 2017 once I took the leap from my day job as an Art Director / UI/UX Designer / Web Designer / Graphic Designer in favor of more creative freedom and flexibility in my schedule. In addition to freelancing, I started selling (very homemade) stationery at local art markets around NOLA.

Since then, I've refined my production methods as thousands of Sassy Banana products have made their way into the hands of patrons at markets, retail shops, and beyond. All of my products are still created and packaged with love, in-house. Custom work is available as well for businesses, personal stationery, special events like weddings, and more. 

When I'm not designing stationery, I enjoy walks along the bayou, quality time with friends and family, being a mom, and getting out on the town. I love a good yoga sesh and I'm a bit of a foodie, if you couldn't tell from my greeting cards! It's so important to enjoy all that life has to offer.

If you have any questions regarding ordering from me or wholesale, please feel free to reach out to me any time to anna@sassybananadesignco.com.
