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. I’m proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and After Effects, but I also bring a unique creative eye and easy-to-work-with personality.

Right now I’m at an agency where I make emails, videos, social and more for Alaska Airlines’ loyalty program.

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.

“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.)”
