Hey there! I'm Shannon, a multi-disciplinary designer focusing on editorial design, illustration, and immersive design.
My background is in editorial design (the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Daily Orange, and the Syracuse Stand), architecture, branding for good causes (such as the annual Pixels & Print workshop) and a passion for the messy and fine arts (printmaking, pen drawing, ceramics).
Last year, I was chosen as the 2022 SND Student Designer of the Year.
Currently, I am finishing up my final year at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. For the last four years, I have been studying Graphic Design, Architecture, and Film Studies.
Developing an awareness of composition through pen drawing, oil painting, and linoleum block printmaking.
Working on tight deadlines at the Daily Orange, as Design Editor and Presentation Director.
Collaborating with over 50 designers during the annual Pixels & Print workshop to design for a non-profit organization in Syracuse, NY.
Working with Revive Glassworks, a small business in Kahalui, HI.
Designing print and digital designs for the Star Tribune in Minneapolis, MN.
Creating my capstone project (AR immersive meeting spaces) and design projects (such as social media campaigns, with Ami Vitale).
