garnet (nettie) fisher
my name is garnet (my great grandmother’s name was garnet) but you can call me nettie. i use she/they pronouns. i live in asheville, nc on ᏣᎳᎫᏪᏘᏱ (cherokee) land about twenty minutes from the house i grew up in.
i went to school for design. i will geek tf out with you about visual symbolism. i’m interested in effective communication and emergent strategy. i’m fascinated by the way ideas move through people and how experience is encoded into instinct.
you could probably call me an artist and i wouldn’t correct you, but most of the time i don’t really identify that way. the art world is weird, you know? sometimes i paint and sometimes i trade my paintings for money. sometimes i will paint on your walls if you want me to.
i’m a nerd. i taught myself to code making xanga blog themes in middle school and now i design and build websites for all different kinds of people and organizations. i’ve helped launch multiple brands and directed everything from brand strategy to UI/UX design to a music video.
i enjoy talking with people who are interested in navigating the creative process together and breaking down barriers and norms within their industry.
most recently i’ve been putting in sweat equity with my friends at different wrld to engage our vision of building a creative hub + culture house here in my hometown of asheville.
i love to take on other projects whenever i have the capacity, so if you need a website, are looking for artwork, or just want someone to give a fresh perspective on your vision, send me an email or dm. i promise there’s a real human behind the machine.
