I’m Sarah Shumaker and I am a digital designer living in Madison, WI. I have always been a lover of creating beautiful things, but like many design professionals, my path to this career was not direct. I earned a BS in Zoology in 2008 and have spent most of the last decade working as a veterinary technician in a small animal clinic. Working in a field that is so structured made me realize that under my dog hair-covered scrubs was a creative voice that desperately wanted to be heard. In 2018 I dove back into school and will graduate with a degree in Web and Digital Media Design in May 2020.

My interests include UX/UI design, web design, interactive design, and copywriting. I am also enthusiastic about watercolor, printmaking, and surface design. My dream job would involve combining my loves of biology and design, and doing work to bring attention to environmental issues. I am looking to join a team of relaxed individuals who love helping others by delivering beautiful, useful designs.
