Squidsmarks was founded in 2005 by Shannon Reid, an Australian creative currently living in the coastal city of Wollongong.
Squidsmarks works with local clients to create logos, commercials and advertising material, music videos, and illustrations.
Reid has a wide range of skills and a desire to continue learning which leads to projects spanning across animation, advertising, building, furniture design and construction, landscaping, gardening and when there’s time music.
Outside of design Reid is also a personal trainer, yoga teacher, and Pilates instructor.
In 2007 Reid started working at the world’s largest privately owned regional television network, WIN Television.
