Hello There,

I’m Shawn Farnum, a Graphic Designer with a passion for creating compelling visual narratives that resonate with diverse audiences. With a degree from Montana State University and a rich blend of experiences across various industries such as fintech, healthcare, and augmented reality, my design approach is both innovative and user-centric.

My expertise includes crafting engaging visual content, from initial concept to final design, using tools like Adobe Creative Suite, Figma, and Sketch. I excel in translating ideas into visual stories that captivate and communicate effectively.

Additionally, my background in UI/UX design enhances my ability to create designs that are not only visually appealing but also user-friendly and aligned with user needs. My proficiency with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript aids in creating designs that seamlessly integrate with web technologies, ensuring a smooth transition from design to development.

Eager to bring a blend of creative vision and practical expertise, I am committed to delivering designs that are not just visually stunning but also strategically effective. My organized, proactive approach, coupled with a commitment to excellence, makes me a valuable asset to any team or project.

In addition to my focus on Graphic Design, I possess a comprehensive skill set in UI/UX, Web Design, and WordPress. These additional portfolios showcase my versatility and commitment to holistic design and development solutions.


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. While I’m always available for one-off graphic design work, my main focus is finding full-time,  remote, or in-person employment opportunities.
