About Me

0cfe165My name is Siobhan Remy – wait! Don’t stop reading! My name is only aesthetically intimidating, verbally it’s very easy: Sha-von (see simple!).  I have over 5 years of full time design experience in a professional, project based, marketing environment.  I specialize in graphic design, web design and marketing  but my broad range of experience has also given me skills in video development, animation, interface design and strategic planning.

I have a huge desire to learn and I get great satisfaction from teaching myself new things. My greatest career achievement so far is winning the automotive industry excellence in marketing awards in 2013 and 2015.
