THANKS FOR Visiting! I'm Shaylyn, a MULTIDISCIPLINARY designer, ILLUSTRATOR, and lettering artist BASED in Brooklyn, NY.
For me, the blood, sweat, and tears that go into the creative process are half the fun of any project. Figuratively speaking, usually. With extensive experience in both agencies and in-house for international brands, I'm as comfortable creating in 72dpi as I am with a Sharpie marker. My skills have earned wins and recognition from the ADDYs, AGDA, and W3 Awards– plus several spelling bee and bar trivia victories.
I'm a voracious culture consumer, which often informs my work. Despite a healthy appetite for quality reading, I have an undiscerning palate when it comes to '80s music and horror films.
I guess it's obvious, i also like to write.
From sharing ways to create sustainable food and job opportunities, to brushing up on Brooklyn literature's finest and publicizing community events, to dispensing advice on day-drinking decorum and savoring summer, I'm always down to weigh in on pressing issues (and illustrate them, too.) I've dabbled in copywriting as well.
Drop Me a line!
I'm available for projects, collaborations, and conversations! Let's talk: firstname.lastname@example.org
