About Sarah

Firstly, I am ‘old school’ so I want to meet you, listen to you and learn all about your business so I can fully understand your goals and develop a relationship based on honesty and trust. Secondly, I am dedicated to getting the best solution to the right audience by working hard for your business and brand. If you choose to work with me and can accept my rather loud laugh, we can further build our relationship because over time your business will grow and your needs will change.

I have been a graphic designer all of my working life because I am obsessed with visual communication and seek every opportunity to develop myself further as a creative. I have also been training individuals in graphic design and digital media for nearly 20 years across a variety of educational institutions. I find training both challenging and rewarding as there are a wide array of different abilities and skills to support but ultimately an individual’s success is the greatest reward for me.

Alongside teaching and running my own business, I completed my Master’s Degree in Creative Practice which enabled me to explore design through data story telling. I worked with healthcare professionals and medical researchers to create public engagement installations and exhibitions raising awareness of their work, which is something I will continue to pursue.
