Hello There,

I am Shawn Farnum, a trained Graphic Designer with expertise in front-end Web Design. My educational journey at Montana State University, where I majored in Graphic Design and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in December of 2021, has equipped me with an extensive understanding of design principles. These principles are the bedrock of my approach to web design, enabling me to create digital experiences that are both aesthetically remarkable and user-centric.

In my web design portfolio, you will discover various projects demonstrating my ability to merge visual creativity with functional web solutions. My expertise extends beyond the technicalities of coding to encompass a holistic understanding of what makes a website truly engaging and effective.

As a web designer, I focus on creating cohesive and immersive online experiences. I blend the artistic elements of graphic design with the practical aspects of web usability, ensuring that each project is visually striking but also intuitive and responsive. This synergy of art and functionality is a hallmark of my work, reflecting my commitment to crafting websites that balance aesthetic appeal with seamless user interaction.

My passion lies in developing web experiences that captivate and connect with users. I am dedicated to delivering designs that are not just visually beautiful but also highly intuitive, offering users a seamless journey through well-structured and thoughtfully designed web spaces.

In addition to my focus on web design, I possess a comprehensive skill set in UI/UX, Graphic 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 Web Design work, my main focus is finding full-time,  remote, or in-person employment opportunities.
