Sarah Brockett

Software Consultant & Designer, Grand Rapids

Sarah Brockett

I am a multidisciplinary designer who utilizes empathy to create delightful experiences. My objective is to create innovative and useful solutions that will positively impact the lives of many people, while always remaining curious and humble.

I began my design career at Grand Valley State University, where I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design. I started working for marketing agencies before graduation, and was quickly scooped up into the world of product packaging and advertising campaigns. I had the opportunity to work on a large range of projects, in a fast-paced environment, but I felt that something was missing from my life. Being a natural humanitarian, I was drawn to a profession that allowed me to impact lives in a more positive way. This drive is what brought me to the world of software and interaction design. Today, I am delighted to be an Atom, working with a group highly skilled and intelligent individuals, creating software that improves lives.

I love making connections with other creatives. Because of this, I stay active in our local community. I currently coordinate social media for AIGA West Michigan and am a member of Ladies that UX and IxDA. I previously taught Experience Design to undergraduate students at GVSU, and look forward to teaching again in the future.

When I’m not busy solving design problems, you can find me baking elaborate vegan treats, DIYing something in my home, or adventuring outdoors with Stella, my loving pit bull.
