Hi, I’m Alysheia Shaw-Danby

It’s my belief that design and illustration should be as inclusive and accessible as it is beautiful and functional. In my opinion, the most successful creative work is equitable, doesn’t make assumptions, levels the field of knowledge for common ground and understanding, and evokes a feeling of connection with the audience.

In my future work, I’d like to hone my broad skillset to focus on developing creative works that consider and amplify the lived experiences of marginalized folks, cultures, and heritages and build power for those communities. When given the opportunity, I would lead creative campaigns with accessible and targeted copywriting, impactful storytelling, and equitable visuals representative of the people. In addition, I would be inclusive when working with a team or client and invite others to share their diverse experiences and opinions.

Beyond my current skillset, I seek to learn more about creating effective learning journeys for instructional design and am looking for opportunities to build on this knowledge.
