Bio I am a mixed media artist – visual storyteller with a passion for all things DESIGN. I LIKE TO MAKE THINGS, IT’S WHO I AM! All my life I have been pursuing my art, seeking out my voice, but life kept getting in the way. Finally, after 20+ award (8 Gold Awards, Summit Award, President Club…) winning years in retail management, an opportunity presented it self. I took a leap of faith and pursued my passion – earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design, from The Art Institute of Atlanta. Earning the degree was just the beginning; I still had to earn a living. In November 2009 I started Shelton Cochran DESIGNS (SCD), a graphic design service for small businesses and solo-entrepreneurs. SCD allowed me to do the two things that are most important to me, be there for my kids on a daily basis and continue the search for my artistic voice. It has also help me: 1) Figure out what I do best. 2) Work with businesses from different industries. 3) Work directly with the client. 4) Marry the skills I learned in my last profession, with my new one. I’ve found that the traits that made me an award winning retail manager also make me a great designer. I like people. I genuinely care about them and their needs. I listen to them to determine how I can help them fulfill those needs. I am and always have been a problem solver; it’s what made me a good salesperson, an effective manager and now an intuitive designer.
