How I work
Advertising can be inclusive, accessible, and empowering AND still meet (and exceed!) business goals.
As a designer, I flex both technical skills and soft skills like communication and problem solving. Empathy and respect are at the foundation of my work—respect for the people I work for, the people who will see my work, and for myself is all essential to creating meaningful work.
With five years experience working for a variety of clients in a variety of workplaces, I’m able to hit the ground running no matter the project. I’m proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and After Effects, and I bring a unique creative eye and easy-to-work-with personality.
I care about mental health, body positivity and women's healthcare. Also fun, equally important things like stand up comedy, horror movies, and spending time with my sweet, goofy dogs.
Have a project that you need help on? I would love to lend a hand. Available for layout, print, presentations, logo/identity design, web graphics, motion and more—just send me a note below and let’s make something awesome!
“Sierra is a super talented genius! I asked her to design a logo and a sticker for me and she enthusiastically accepted the job. A day or so later, I opened my inbox to find about six fully executed ideas that were all awesome. I wound up (happily) buying more from her than I intended and her work got me extra excited to launch my new side business. I definitely hope to be able hire Sierra again and again. (I also get compliments on her work all the time.)”
