Hello, my name is Shawn Schmidt, and I am a designer, illustrator, and photographer living in Vancouver, Washington. As a lifelong creative, I strive to remain a student of craft, skill, and understanding. My skill set includes the latest cutting edge design software, such as Adobe Creative Cloud, but I often prefer to begin with pen and paper.
It is my aim in order to grow as a creative and human being, to be a continuous learner of art, craft, and design as to maximize my usefulness in the endeavor of helping others realize their creative communication goals and needs. As such I strive to approach every situation with an open mind, compassion, kindness, and a willingness to learn and to understand.
Some of my hobbies and inspirations include: outdoors, hiking, and people watching. I love to play the guitar, study music theory for composition and sound recording. I love animals of all types and I find my greatest fulfillment in being of service to others. I have been a member of AIGA since 2015. You can find me on Instagram, and Facebook.
