B.A.F.F.L.E.D. is all about promoting creative people and creative business. We've got the best of both worlds. Today we are profiling Shari Neal, a Chicago graphic designer making waves and doing big things. Check out her profile below:
Hi everyone! My name is Shari and I am a lifelong Chicagoan, though the entire rest of my family is from Belize. I'm a web/Flash developer by day at an advertising agency and a freelance graphic designer when time permits. You may have seen some of my work out there. I designed the site for Black Girl With Long Hair and the logo for Afrobella. Currently, almost all of my time goes into my online shop, Bon Bon Vie (after the T.S. Monk song of the same name). I've always had an unhealthy obsession with tee shirts, so I figured, why not design some myself? I currently have a few designs on the site, but will be rolling out more slowly but surely.
I currently work at Abelson Taylor, a pharmaceutical advertising by day as an interactive developer doing mostly Flash development, and in my spare time, I do a lot of freelance work (art direction, graphic & web design, t-shirt design, wordpress development). My online portfolio is located at http://www.cargocollective.com/sharineal. I just started an online t-shirt shop called Bon Bon Vie, so that is my baby at the moment.
Look alive for Shari's talented creations and the Bon Bon Vie brand!
