Welcome! I'm Shanna, a brand-new transplant to the SF Bay Area from the DC Area fascinated by UI and visual design, and a 2020 graduate of the University of Richmond  (B.A. in Theater, B.S. in Psychology, minor in Visual Media Arts Practice). I've been lucky enough (and curious enough) to have explored and created projects in just about every category of artistic expression there is, and I have no intention of stopping anytime soon.  I'm excited by how and why things work both conceptually and visually, things that have never been done before, the shapes of letters, challenging problems without obvious solutions, and people.

 

When I'm not working on design projects, I spend most of my time in "director mode" co-running Camp Kesem at UR, a year-round support system for around one hundred Richmond area kids impacted by a parent's cancer, with a week of (messy, chaotic, and fulfilling) sleepaway camp each summer as the highlight. I'm also a self-taught handletterer (is that a word yet?), recently published poet/collage artist (find Extractisomnitus here!), I just finished painting my first wall mural (as a quarantine project), and one time I sang backup to Rita Ora and Janelle Monae for the Obama family on national TV (that's me on the left!).
