I’m Shawn Weston McLaughlin, an Art Director and good apple. As a creative professional, my job is easy to understand: I help companies (like yours) succeed.
For the last decade, I’ve spent my career developing solutions for people (PBS, Comvia International / Taylor Swift Band, The University of Arkansas, CCM Network International, and chart-topping Love Like Gravity, to name a few). These solutions position them above their competitors, ultimately growing the bottom line.
Not only does my work ensure that my clients will stand out, it also provides answers that stand the test of time, enabling clients to engage and connect with their own customers more effectively than ever before.
I currently serve as the Online Art Director for the largest newspaper network in the state of Arkansas. Outside of work, I spend my time hanging out with my beautiful wife, our three kids (who, luckily, get their looks from their mother), a small homestead full of veggies, a small flock of chickens and ducks (“the ladies”), and a couple of pups (named “Basil” and “Ginger”).
What folks are saying…
“If I had to choose a single word to describe Shawn McLaughlin, it would be ‘impressive.’ I was impressed by his work as well as his capacity for creative collaboration. His design not only made a huge impact on me, but on our readership. His designed primed us to make a lasting impression, one that truly reflected our brand image. I have no doubt that our new design will serve us well for years to come. Thanks to Shawn, we have reentered the market with a competitive edge and a design that reflects exactly who we are and what we offer.”
“Shawn McLaughlin is a pleasure to work with on projects big and small. More importantly, he has always delivered more than I expected and on schedule. He takes the time to understand what I’m looking for at the outset and is able to incorporate different ideas as the project evolves, without losing site of the project’s purpose. The end result is always an aesthetically pleasing design that treats the end user as the top priority. There is no other creative professional with whom I would rather work.”
“Shawn is great at looking at the whole picture, seeing oncoming problems before they come, and making sure they never come about. He has had great integrity, which shows through his work ethic on every element of every project he has done for me. Shawn does not just design, he develops. When he develops, he has helped me to look at things I never would have considered before, making my outcome much fuller than it would have been.
Shawn is a man of quality.”
