Sierra Plese

Graphic Designer

Sierra is an award-winning Graphic Designer. With agency experience, she is well-versed in digital, branding, and print design and knows how to work at a brisk pace. An avid reader, Sierra has even designed a few books cover to cover, giving her advanced skill in typography.

Sierra’s love of design began at a young age, while perusing the shelves for her next book. With a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Tennessee and a BS in Communications with a focus in Digital Media from Milligan College, Sierra is well-rounded. She can design an ADA compliant, modern website and write copy for a brochure. She loves healthy competition and thrives in an environment where she is challenged by her peers to be better every day. She approaches each project with the intention of making it better than the last. She’s quick to try new approaches and styles, even if that means she has to learn something brand new to get it done.
