“God put me on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right now I am so far behind that I will never die.”
— Bill Watterson




Currently I am a freelance graphic designer, UI designer, art director and web developer seeking work that bridges any or all of these disciplines.

Previously I was the Senior Designer for One Reel, producers of Bumbershoot, City of Music Career Day, and (formerly) the Family 4th at Lake Union.

You may peruse my résumé or better yet, enjoy my most recent and best work in my ever-evolving folio, where, if it’s not there at the time you read this, I soon hope to add details behind my thought and work processes. In the meantime, I’d be glad to discuss it with you in person.

Email me (at) or contact @shaunline if you’re interested in working with me.

This is version 6—or is it 7? I’ve lost track—of The last version I liked well enough, but it was broken for far too long. The new hotness is my most recent attempt to find a magical place where my site is both functional and well-formed.

The new, fully responsive is constructed with the help of CSS, HTML and jQuery, all on top of my old standby CMS, TextPattern.

The entire site has been hand-coded with love and care, and is designed with web standards and media queries. It should look pretty great on your computer or phone, so long as you’re using a modern piece of equipment (which you should be).
