Hello There,

My name is Shawn Farnum I’m a solution-loving, design-dabbling, Montana State University grad passionate about all things UI/UX. With a mix of self-taught and academic experience, I bring a fresh perspective to the table that’s as unique as my favorite pair of socks.

I thrive in the electrifying atmosphere of collaboration, where ideas ricochet and gather energy until they’re ripe for action. My design journey dances through a symphony of planning, crafting, iterating, and absorbing feedback, only to begin the process all over again. When there’s a puzzle to unravel, I immerse myself wholeheartedly. Listening, empathizing, and stepping into the end user’s shoes, I become a problem-solving maestro. This approach has propelled my clients from having no online presence to successfully securing their first rounds of funding.

My approach goes beyond merely pushing pixels and passing them along the assembly line, which we playfully refer to as ‘design-and-ditch.’ Instead, I embrace the big picture, taking into account the broader context and implications of my designs.

Graphic Design


Shawn was a pleasure to have on our team during his internship. Within a limited timeframe, he quickly dove into design tasks and saw larger projects to completion during the engagement. Shawn knows his toolset, what software to reach for, and the processes to employ when it comes to creative problem-solving.

Casey Ferguson - Vice President of Marketing, Zoot Enterprises

“Shawn is responsive, helpful and a self-starter. He helped us with a website redesign and not only came to the table with good ideas but was fast working and on schedule. Even though the project is complete, Shawn is still helpful and willing to answer questions.”

Sara Crow – Marketing Manager, CrossTx

“Shawn is a superb designer and developer. Not only is he able to come up with a very esthetic and user-friendly layout, he is able to construct it with the necessary web development tools. He would be a twofold asset to any company.”

Nicholas Marucci – Instructor, Montana Code School

“Shawn had a solid foundation in UI/UX design that proved to be very useful come course projects. His ability to charge forward into the realm of programming, further displayed his capacity to be highly trainable, as well as eager to learn. I believe he would make a great addition to any team.”

Lauren Nichols – Teaching Assistant, Montana Code School

“Shawn has been quite helpful as a co-founder of DropTrip. He is completely committed to its success and works to improve his skills and abilities on a regular basis to make that happen. He stays focused on the task at hand and clearly never stops thinking about the challenges we face and how to solve them. He is willing to jump in wherever needed.”

Doug Warner – CEO, DropTrip


Drop me a line, I love collaborating and talking with other designers. I’m available for UI/UX work, I’m looking for full-time remote or in-person opportunities.
