I'm Sara and I'm a visual storyteller.
I design infographics and content for non profits and science-based organizations. Send me an email and let's collaborate.
From Geek to Chic
One of my favorite challenges as a graphic designer is to take vast, thick content that normal people would have no interest in and make it palatable. As a visual thinker with a penchant for learning new subjects, the transformation of hard data to smart visuals is a definite passion of mine. Whether it's a long infographic for social media, a data visualization for scientific research, or a factograph for a report, for me it's always super exciting work.
All the Pixels
I lived in Southeast Asia for about ten years off and on, working for large and small non-profits. I produced communication materials and a large portion of that work was web-based graphic design. Working for non-profits has a unique way of increasing your skill-set. I studied photojournalism but while working for non-profits, I picked up graphic design along the way. Presentations, micro-sites, website overhauls, social media content and online campaigns...there's never an end to creating media for online purposes.
Nothing beats the feeling of a well designed book or brochure in your hands. I'm thankful print is not dead like we thought it would be. I'm also thankful for the amount of work I get that is print-based. The process of designing for print and getting designs ready for print is so different than web-based design. There's a finality that requires exactness. Long live print!
