Sharrie Brooks has been a practicing graphic designer ever since
she discovered the field as a Visual Design student at Berkeley.
Sharrie is best known as an Art Director/Senior Designer during her fifteen years at Cahan & Associates. 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 trade show displays. Today, she has designed for a diverse clientele including Gap Inc., Salesforce, Maxygen, Valentis, NetApp, Informatica, Charles Schwab, YRC Worldwide, Morgan Stanley, McKesson, The Coca-Cola Company, Apollo Group, Coulter Pharmaceutical, and Boeing.
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 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. 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.
