My name is Shawna Armstrong and I am a multidisciplinary designer and CPACC located in Atlanta, Georgia. 
I strive to create environments and experiences that allow people to feel included, safe, uninhibited, and encouraged.

I spend my office hours working with the International Society of Arboriculture. I am not taking on new client work at this time; however, I may be open to collaboration on topics close to my heart: science fiction, voting rights, reproductive rights, LBGTQ+, birding, cats, cocktails and all food in general. 

Let's talk.
IAAP CPACC small circular badge and horizontal name logo for International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP) Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC) certification. To the left is a dark blue circle with three lines of centered white text that read: IAAP Certified CPACC. There is a smaller red circle that surrounds the dark blue inner circle that designates the CPACC certification color scheme. To the right, three lines of dark blue text. Top text reads Certified Professional, second line reads in Accessibility Core Competencies, third line reads International Association of Accessibility Professionals.
