Cordon Bleu Design is the design studio of Shana Cordon: owner, creative director and designer. As a consultant, Shana works with clients to establish effective brand strategies and design solutions to express their message to the world. As a master dilettante, she explores her passion for image, words, and stories in multiple forms and media.
Shana began her training at the Arts Magnet school in Oakland, California, where she showed an aptitude for magic markers and poetry. She continued exploring the intersection of image, ideas and words well into university, where she earned a BA in Visual Art and an MFA in Theatre. She is the co-founder of Feral Factory, an interdisciplinary arts organization curating artistic experiences, conversations, happenings, and wildly creative alliances in pop-up spaces.
Shana brings this passion to all of her projects as a designer, a theater maker, an educator, and consultant. She is inspired by love, gelato, public art and graffiti, photography, physical theater, Rome, the ocean, dynamic conversations, and creative collaborations.

With my own background in marketing and as a project manager for a graphic design firm, I highly recommend Shana for several reasons. We have worked on several projects together with great results. In the process I have found her to be reliable, thorough, able to meet tight deadlines, creative and dynamic, as well as totally professional.
She can take the germ of an idea and return with several rich proposals that capture the energy and quirkiness of our department with such graphic clarity and strength. In fact, her work has been popular with the students, faculty and audience who have requested extra copies to frame and display.
During meetings, she demonstrates openness to our preferences as well as comments about her work. I found her flexible and responsive. I know that I can trust that her interpretation of our graphic needs will yield strong results.
If you choose to hire her, you will see that she is extremely bright, mature, creative, humorous and reliable.Liz Acosta
