Shawn Weston is a UX/UI Designer based in the Greater New York City Area



Hello, again.

I’ve been an award-winning designer, creative director and innovator in print and digital media for more than 15 years. With a long record of successful projects and a new range of skills in my arsenal, I'm ready for the next great UX adventure.

fun facts

pizza maker

I love to make food in the company of others. As a hobby, I moonlighted at Talula's in Asbury Park, N.J., making one of the best artisanal pies in America. (No, really!)

Design Unicorn

As an award-winning, innovative visual journalist for 15 years, I've redesigned more than 30 newspapers. I've been a writer, editor, illustrator and mentor, too.


movie guru

I've seen more than 7,500 films, and love to read, write and talk about them with friends. Please don't ask me for a favorite. That would be torture.

Born A Hoosier

I grew up in small-town Goshen, Indiana, but have grown as a design professional in the Greater New York City area. As for the definition of a Hoosier, best to Google it.

I'm a creator and nurturer at heart. My summers are full of perennials and seasonal edibles, including tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, pears, figs and herbs.

Home bartender

I enjoy shaking up the odd cocktail or simple classic (straight up or on the rocks), shopping for a local craft beer and learning about the latest trends in mixology.

Also ...

I churn homemade ice creams and create my own recipes for such flavors as Banana Rum Butterscotch, Strawberry Buttermilk, Pickled Peach Sorbet and Scotchy Scotch Scotch; Some of my favorite TV shows of all time include “The Simpsons,” “The Wire,” “30 Rock,” “Broad City,” “The Larry Sanders Show” and “Breaking Bad”; I love alt-rock, pop and R&B, of which genres include countless artists I revere; and I have a bedlington terrier named after Scottish architect, designer and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
