Janelle Quibuyen (she/her) is a Filipina-American graphic designer and artist telling stories centred around her personal experience as a child of Ilokano working class immigrants and the greater Filipino diaspora.
Janelle’s bold yet simple graphics and illustrations aim to reveal the underrepresented and shine a spotlight on obscure socio-historical events and topics. As a social media and content marketing specialist, Janelle directs creativity to build and implement strategic digital campaigns that build communities and drive brand loyalty. Her expertise has been crafted by managing and growing her clientele’s social media presence over the past 7 years and maybe longer if you want to include her toughest, longest-running client (herself) from when she first learned how to code her own website from scratch in 1998. Janelle attended the Graphic Design & Illustration program at Seattle Central College, graduated in 2011, and has been working and playing in the creative industry ever since. You can find interviews about her work in media such as the International Examiner, KNKX Public Radio Station and The Seattle Times.
