Shannon Hickman’s creative spirit and can-do attitude serve her well as a graphic designer at Advantage Marketing. With fifteen years of graphic design experience, she contributes to a variety of client projects across many design platforms. She is principally focused on print projects and website building. Her favorite medium is printmaking, specifically screen printing. Shannon’s collaborative approach is a great fit for the agency and makes her a valuable resource on the team.
Shannon grew up in Dodge City, Kansas, and has moved all over the state for different jobs throughout her life. Even though she has worked in many places around Kansas, her favorite place to live was always Wichita. She loved the city itself and the people who live here. She stayed in Wichita as long as she could, but transferred to Michigan when her husband was relocated for work. That did not stop her from taking a position to work for AdMark virtually. In Michigan, her family loves visiting the great lakes and all of the scenic nature parks and trails. They enjoy traveling when they are able to get away, especially to the beach. Shannon also loves to visit art galleries and create her own art.
