Shawn Fedora

Principle Designer

Sometimes there's no better way to learn, then to jump right in and get your hands dirty. In 2008, I decided to be my own boss and freelance full-time. The "Great Freelance Experiment" has been a fantastic, but now it's time to hit the road.

I really miss working with people. There's no place like... being part of a creative jam session, and working with folks who know the difference between bitmap and vector, and having real coffee with real people who have real conversations (...cause the stuffed frogs and action hero toys at my desk can only give so much feedback on that new logo design...)

Yep, I really miss working with people who will inspire me. Harness my powers now, before the competition does!
