Becca’s formal education is in art history, and she enters projects from a printer’s perspective, creating clean, minimalist designs. At Shew Design, Becca coordinates and implements social media campaigns. She researches, plans, and schedules creative and production work, and handles the administrative side of the business.
Eric enters projects from a writer’s perspective, approaching design as a fusion of visual and verbal thinking. He is a restless thinker, and he wants every project to be as unique as the client and based on their needs and audience.
His formal education is in creative writing, but his work shows other influences as well. His parents are puzzle makers. His dad is a biologist.

what people say
Director of Development and Advancement
I worked with Shew Design on a fast-moving project with a lot of externally-mandated parameters, and Shew Design was wonderful! Our $24 million/year multi-service nonprofit has a lot of considerations and voices to factor into all web design projects, and Becca and Eric listened and responded well. They kept our users at the center of the conversation and provided excellent customer service as they implemented a production plan that followed an aggressive timeline. The website they designed & produced is better for our clients, staff, and communities than we had envisioned, and can easily be edited and expanded to continue to meet the needs of an ever-changing social services landscape.
Family Engagement Services Coordinator
Early Learning and Family Services,
Shew Design guided us to develop a clear, concise and cohesive marketing portfolio with eye catching designs. They helped us hone and craft a message designed to engage our target audience. They took the time to understand our audience and worked to create images and a feel that would welcome families and cut through the noise. We were quite pleased with the end product.
Shew Design cares deeply about quality and customer satisfaction. They listened to our input and worked hard to make our new brand representative of who we are and something we’re excited about.
Packo Private Wealth Management
Our new brand elevates the presentation of our practice to our clients and distinguishes us from other financial companies. It efficiently brings together form and function in a fresh, professional way. It incorporates the visual elements that are important to us and more clearly demonstrates the services we provide. Shew Design really listened carefully to us and went the extra mile. They exceeded our expectations.
The insight, creativity, and depth of knowledge about branding and marketing that Shew Design provided to Chuckanut Builders was amazing and beyond our initial expectations. The entire process was highly-collaborative and educational. We left armed with a better understanding of our own business and processes as well as tools to improve customer communications.

Working with Shew design to build our website has been a breath of fresh air amidst the craziness of starting a new business. They are easy to work with and an excellent guide when refining our brand’s message and image.
Waycross Investment Management Company
Shew Design helped us get comfortable with wording that would resonate with more people and work on our website, while also respecting the fact that regulations often dictate what we can or cannot say. But they did it, and we’re very happy with our new look.
