Shayne Smith

I’m a designer from Seattle currently working at Amazon. I graduated from Western Washington University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Design and a minor + two certificates in web development. My current design interests lie in interactive, motion, and UX.

Although my portfolio is divided between work and play, I view my work as play. I love exploring and experimenting with many ideas until I create a final solution from a rather complex problem. Within my process, I find that this approach yields better results from myself and from those responding to my work. Since emotions aid in decision making, I believe good design yields positive emotions from users. Thoughtful and well-presented design aids in the value of business, and ultimately society and the world in general.

Design found me at a young age before I knew there was a name for what I was doing. I consistently enjoy thinking outside the box and I am not afraid to take risks. For years I have created digital art in my spare time that has now developed into a substantial collection with a unique but cohesive aesthetic. I constantly have a desire for new experiences and the more I learn about design the more it excites me.
