Hey! I'm Shallin

Creative design leader, crafter of visions, believer in unicorns


I'm a design director and brand consultant, with years of strategy-backed product and brand design experience living in wonderful Portland, Oregon. Currently the Design Director over at wisp and before that the Creative Director at AskNicely. I'm a pup-obsessed, chai-enthusiast that will never say no to a bike ride. I've got a soft spot for mission-driven organizations, startups, and non-profits. I believe elegant minimalism sells. I also believe everyone you meet knows something you don't.
