Shirley Van



Hi! I’m Shirley Van.

As a kid, I was the go-to person for building, fixing or dissecting anything around the house. I had a special talent for breaking and taking things apart. Sometimes they were even put back together.

As a designer, I am a blend of logic and whimsy. Visual storytelling using both illustration and graphics allows me to communicate function that is accessible on an emotional level. Adding a sense of humor and joy to my design work allows me to connect with my users through the universal language of feelings.
