Shelby Cohen


Growing up, my mom tinkered with so many art forms that colors, textures, and the rule of thirds quickly became the lens through which I viewed the world. As a designer, I believe in the power of visual storytelling to create meaningful connections that evoke emotion and inspire action. My approach combines creativity with strategic thinking, ensuring that every design element serves a purpose and enhances the overall message.

Originally from the Tampa Bay area, I spent three years teaching in China and Taiwan before making Greenville my home. A dedication to environmental stewardship, education, and civic engagement has driven my professional journey. Before launching my freelance design and communications business, I was the Strategic Communications Director for a local education nonprofit and led environmental programming and communications for Greenville’s Soil & Water Conservation District, where I founded the Seed Library program.

With a BA in International Studies and an MA in Global Sustainability from the University of South Florida, I bring a global perspective to my work. I am fascinated by different cultures and the unique perspectives they hold.

In my spare time, I love traveling with my family, practicing yoga, reading, and exploring new fonts and color schemes for my next design project. Currently, I am learning the art of bread baking and reviving my vegetable garden, which took a brief hiatus after the arrival of my 18-month-old son, Izzy.
