Shelli Decker

An explorer at heart, Shelli has a passion for discovering why, where, and how. While she proudly considers herself a Jersey girl, having also lived in California, Missouri, Ohio, and New York has shaped her interest in travel and unique local cultures.    


By day, a retail designer, and by night, a strategist and graphic designer for a non-profit organization, Shelli thrives on learning what makes a brand unique and creating memorable experiences for its customers. Whether imagining a retail store or a national volunteer campaign, her background in design and branding gives her the adventurous mindset to take risks and the path less traveled.    


Aside from completing her Masters in Branding at SVA, her current ambition is to sky dive in New Zealand.   

The curriculum for The Masters in Branding Program allows students to create frameworks to guide brand, design and business development, critically evaluate brand, business, marketing and design strategies and Master the intellectual link between leadership and creativity. Learn more...
