Hello! I’m Cheyenne Rosa Thayer.

I’m a website designer & digital marketing expert based in Brooklyn, NY.

 
 

I didn’t always market brands from the big apple. My story began on the west coast—back when Chia pet commercials were a thing and pokémon was just a gameboy color game.

My humble beginnings…

I grew up on a farm in the middle of nowhere, California. I was always so fascinated by electronics and the future of technology—perhaps because it was so foreign to my humble beginnings. I spent my days exploring the hills behind my home in the Sutter Buttes and playing the Oregon Trail on our desktop computer. When you grow up in a small farm town, technology is the only way to connect with the rest of the world. My ambitions were born.

The college years…

I majored in Advertising and Communications at the University of Oregon Journalism School—earning a Bachelor of Science degree. I was so excited by the idea of studying the future of communications and marketing in the digital age. It was the same curiosity that ignited my imagination as a child. I was motivated by the idea of using my computer knowledge to build innovative destinations for brands that could influence people. It was empowering to learn that marketing in the 90’s and early 2000’s was responsible for my issues with self-esteem as a teenager. I didn’t realize how impactful advertising could be to young people. I am thankful that my advertising education at the University of Oregon focused on ethical marketing practices—I am determined to use my skills to work against marketing practices that pray on the insecurities of consumers.

Early in my career…

I am passionate about supporting other female entrepreneurs. I understand how it feels to come up against challenges in the workplace because of being a woman. I worked my way up from a graphic designer to digital marketing director in under four years at a small, creative agency that managed a large portfolio of international brands. My growth at that company was met with a lot of doubt by my superiors, but the CEO always believed in me. It was his faith in my potential, the support of my family, and my belief in myself, that contributed to my success. Support and faith in yourself is everything. I’ve managed teams of designers, marketers, and developers. I’ve given marketing pitches to clients in Tokyo, Japan and Montreal, Canada in order to secure new product lines. No challenge is too big or intimidating to me. I am motivated to learn, grow, and support other women with similar ambitions along the way.

A new journey begins…

In 2018, I decided it was time to embark on a new journey and fulfill my dream of living and working in New York City. I packed up and moved my entire life from the west coast over to Brooklyn, NY. It’s been a long time in the making, and I’m finally here and ready to pursue my career in the most exciting city in the world.
