I reached out to Shannon for help when working on a client project. We needed some extra help with redesigning a significant portion of the site within the existing brand guidelines. Shannon had a great portfolio and was very responsive, so that was pretty big in us wanting to work with her. After that client project, I hired her again for another project. Shannon is an excellent communicator and is really great with our clients. She’s got an incredible skill as a designer in taking very loose guidelines / requirements and producing beautiful, high quality designs that are within a brand’s existing styles. I’d recommend her wholeheartedly as someone looking for a dependable and talented designer to work with.

We’ve worked with Shannon for over 5 years and couldn’t be happier with the results of our work together. Shannon has a knack for taking specs that are complicated and unsightly and turning them into a product that is simple and beautiful. I’ve been managing development processes for 15+ years and she is the best I’ve worked with at making me feel novice (in a good way). While I deliver a spec that is functional, she returns a design that is intuitive and visually engaging. She is a critical element in the ongoing success of our web app.

Having spent my entire career working on the verbal side of branding, I know the importance of a strong visual brand as well as my inability to create one. I wanted a simple, effective brand for my independent consultancy, without the bloated timelines, deliverables, and cost inherent in working with larger studios. Shannon understood this, tailoring our engagement to the key deliverables that any independent consultant would need. Shannon was communicative, down-to-earth, and committed to my satisfaction. The entire process felt super easy (and fun!) and I'd recommend Shannon to all of my peers.
