Shannon Leigh

“We work on a wide variety of projects with varying scopes. No matter the project size, it’s exciting as a designer to be a part of the transformation from conceptual idea – even a napkin sketch – to a compelling visual.”

Shannon is an experienced and talented designer with a wide range of capabilities. She has created and managed brand identities, collateral, advertising, Word and PowerPoint templates, event signage, HTML emails, user interfaces and Web sites for a diverse client base. Her great skill lies in her ability to effectively communicate information and present concepts visually.

Shannon is expert in PhotoShop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, Dreamweaver and Microsoft Office. She is versed in offset and digital printing and graphics-related Section 508 compliance.

Shannon’s clients have included: Approva, Brabeion Software, CadenceQuest, DARPA, e-Security, Fauquier SPCA, Isabel Healthcare, Mandiant, Marketo, MicroStrategy, ODIN Technologies, Pharma Services Network, Premier Inc., Qlarion, SiloSmashers, USA Today, and Vovici.

Shannon contributed to the Approva “Greater Visibility. Better Controls” campaign (2006) which won best “Integrated Marketing Campaign – Business to Business” award by the American Marketing Association (AMA). She won first place in a brochure design contest for the National Recreation Services Association.

Shannon keeps a stash of paint swatches that could make Benjamin Moore jealous. When she’s not coming up with new projects around the house, she’s spending time with family or planning her next Outer Banks vacation.

Shannon earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design from James Madison University.
