Bio I am a designer who applies cultural nuance and juxtaposition to the storytelling process. I’ve primarily focused on ideating and creating content marketing assets for clients through the forms of still graphics and illustration. I thrive on pulling in multiple perspectives — Japanese and American — to connect, move and create culture. It stems from my biracial background. I've spent half my professional life learning what makes culture tick through identity communications research and teaching English in Japanese public schools. Now I enter the moment to capitalize on that knowledge / experience delivering creative content that moves masses through work with amazing people. My long term goal is to lead teams of creatives. Side dreams include becoming a consultant during the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and taking over Anthony Bourdain's "Parts Unknown". Also, continuing to teach inner-city kids about creativity and everyone about travel. I currently am involved with AIGA Wisconsin, Creative Mornings MKE, and Greater Together to provide creative inspiration to kids / locals. I also produce a weekly Instagram series called @1MinStorys. Street culture, graffiti, social tech and traveling pulls at my heart strings. Email: shanerallen@gmail.com An ad which excites my soul: youtu.be/WNbb9qixsRQ
