Sharrie Brooks has been a practicing Graphic Designer ever since
she discovered the field while studying Architecture and Visual Design at the College of Environmental Design, University of California Berkeley. 

​Sharrie is best known as an Art Director/Senior Designer during her sixteen years at Cahan & Associates in San Francisco. At this time,
she developed a body of work that includes both print and online communications for everything from brand launches, annual reports, advertising and packaging—to websites and event graphics. After Cahan, she worked for numerous creative agencies such as Eleven, Rhiney, Emotive Brand, and Novio. She has designed for a diverse clientele including Visa, Gap Inc., Salesforce, Maxygen, Valentis, NetApp, Sky Vodka, Informatica, Charles Schwab, Morgan Stanley, Intel, Genentech, UCSF, Apollo Group, Global Logic, Evolutions Flooring, and 10X Genomics. She has been fortunate to have worked with some of the best critically acclaimed photographers and illustrators in the industry.

Sharrie believes in delivering smart and engaging design. If that means reading about and understanding PEGylation or Luminesence Probes, all the better. In fact, Sharrie has a science gene, and that helps enable her to better understand how to communicate a
complex idea.

Sharrie's work has been recognized nationally and internationally
by her peers in the field of design, and has been awarded numerous design honors, including being featured in many industry design books and publications such as Graphis, Communications Arts, Print, and the Cahan book, I am Almost Always Hungry. Additionally, Sharrie was awarded a gold Clio for her design of the Maxygen 1999 annual report. Her work is also represented in the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and The Cooper–Hewitt National Design Museum in New York.
