About Me

Hi my name is Sara, and I LOVE designing things.

 

I am a Raleigh native and an East Carolina University graduate, with a degree in Business Management and concentration in Marketing.  I have taken numerous graphic design classes over the years, but it has been my professional experience that has really helped me fine-tune my skills as a designer and learn the real-life ins and outs of a large variety of projects.

 

In my previous jobs I worked for a large healthcare company for 11 years in the Marketing department, the last six of which I was the Graphic Design Supervisor and created almost all of the company's printed and packaging materials. After that I worked for a fun, family-owned, local restaurant company where I got to create a wide variety of materials and design concepts for such great restaurants as Carolina Ale House, Taverna Agora, Bluewater, and Oceanic. So I'm used to projects of all complexities, budgetary concerns, tight deadlines, endless changes and the need for consistent branding across all mediums.

 

When I'm not taking care of my twin boys or on the computer, I like to paint, decorate, sew, garden, cook - just about anything creative - and also travel, read, learn about different cultures, volunteer, and I really love the beach and boating with my husband.

 

Contact me today to discuss your next project - I'd love to help you create your next Slick Design!
