For Shannon, the line between graphic design and fine art is forever blurred. “I can’t help but bring my experience and passion for both art forms into whatever project I’m working on,” she says. Shannon holds a degree in Graphic Design from Portfolio Center, but it’s her success as a painter that gives her a unique perspective in this field. With commissions of her signature oversized modern artwork featured in prominent restaurants and hotels across the country (including several Grand Hyatts and the Bellagio), Shannon intuitively approaches brand development and marketing strategy with an artist’s eye. As she points out, “color, layout and composition transcend all mediums.” It’s her ability to incorporate hand drawn and painted material into her graphic designs and her unique eye that provides her clients with one-of-a-kind identities and marketing campaigns.
Shannon is a seasoned designer/art director with hands-on experience in creation, execution and delivery of innovative concept development, branding initiatives, marketing strategies and project management. She has worked as a freelancer in design studios in addition to working as an art director and set dresser for commercials and rap videos. Her clientele is diverse, from creative local start-ups like Aptidata Corp. to established institutions like The Atlanta Ballet, Georgia Lottery, WSBTV and Grady Hospital. Shannon has a knack for thinking outside of the box and brainstorming the next Big Idea. Her excellent presentation, leadership and communication skills make her a fine addition to any project!
