About Sheri

Sheri F Selph
"Sheri's highly qualified to paint in pigments or pixels. But don't let her fancy hat collection fool you—she's not afraid of camping the backcountry or resolving nasty font conflicts."

Sheri hails from the rustic south but found her way to mid-sized metropolitan bliss in pursuit of scenic hilltops and higher education. After completing her MFA in Graphic Design at University of Tennessee, Knoxville, she spent some time soaking in the Nashville scene while accruing an impressive ten years in the marketing and advertising biz. Now serving as Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Middle Tennessee State University, Sheri enjoys the angelic sound of 23 iMacs starting up in the morning and helping students find out their own creative paths.


Sheri Selph Design is a one-woman show but has taps into some very talented resources that can grow your project as efficiently and robustly as needed.

Creative Strategy

​​Design is more than visuals. Great design starts with a purpose. Whether you need help with your brand, dynamic direct marketing or a complete campaign, I deliver beautiful design with a specific marketing agenda. I understand you care about the look but also about your bottom line.  ​

I offer a variety of design services including:

  • Brand Development & Logos

  • Direct Mail & Email

  • Websites

  • Magazine Advertising

  • Sales Collateral (Business Cards, Brochures, Posters)



I've done work for Fortune 500 companies — everything from Retail Banking to Casinos to Healthcare. But I love to tackle a design challenge for a smaller business needing to grow.

Most of all, I love working for the clients that love working with me.
