Hi, I'm Shawna.
I believe the best work gets past pretty pixels and into something more meaningful. I'm interested in crafting user experiences that meet and support client and user needs, and in designing interfaces that direct and delight. Essentially, I'm working towards making the internet a better, friendlier, and more accessible place, one product at a time.
