About Dawn Shepard

I’m an explorer. I travel the world, draw a map, take data and make a chart, or copy words out of a doc and lay them out to be read and understood. These are the things I do. But my world is a constant collage of grace, visions, colors, thought, and strategy. It’s rooted in making the uptake easy. Sometimes it requires invention and other times it’s redressing the wheel. All of it is design and that is my home.
