Hi, I’m Shannon!

I started freelancing while I was working for San Francisco magazine as the Advertising Art Director. When the freelance projects increased, I bit the bullet and quit that awesome job to devote myself to my new company—Small Dog Workshop!

People often ask me about my company name. I’ve actually never had a small dog, as much as I like them. I’M the small dog and it’s a “workshop” because there’s a wide variety of projects going on, not just design. I started as a print designer and later branched out to web design. I also do illustration and copywriting.

In 2015 I launched my Going To Guides book series published by Orchard Hill Press. These guides to Disney parks for kids and kids at heart include “Going To Disneyland” and “Going To Disney California Adventure” and I’m currently working on my third guide for Magic Kingdom in Florida. Be sure to visit Going To Guides and my Etsy shop to check out my books and goodies made with art from the books.

So, what do you need help with? If I can’t help you, I probably know someone who can. Let’s chat!
xoxo,
Shannon
