I believe those who design with vision & lead with humility transform culture.

I'm Amanda, a designer at the intersection of emerging tech & human-centered design.


I'm Amanda Shearon – a product designer, design educator, and perpetual optimist. I ask strategic questions in service of making business impact and am driven by a strong conviction for serving people through beautiful, meaningful design.

I currently design products for emerging technologies at IBM Research, working with scientific researchers to incubate quantum and AI innovation into net new business opportunities for IBM.

Based in Austin, TX where I shamelessly eat tacos for every meal and am learning not to take myself too seriously 😉
