Sarah has been working with WriterAccess as a copywriter on and off for nearly a decade, but in the last few years, she's transitioned from writing to design and illustration.

There was a significant emphasis on design in both her education and journalism master's programs, as both prioritized communication of ideas. However, it was in her journalism program that she learned the fundamentals of professional design, from Adobe Creative Suite, to photography and photo manipulation, to HTML and CSS.

Following graduate school, she worked as a writer for WA and private clients, the latter of which frequently requested design collateral as well. Over the next decade, she learned to use Canva and Krita proficiently and deepened her knowledge of Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop. Of course, there's always more to learn, but that's part of what she loves about this field!

She has created countless illustrations, wireframes, websites, logos, brochures, infographics, newsletters, and more. While she is very comfortable with digital programs, her preference is design that incorporates a hand-drawn feel. Where she can't find the right graphics through a service, she draws or paints them by hand, ensuring her clients always have fresh material they can't find anywhere else, with a light touch that can steer fanciful or sober, depending on the client's needs. She also provides hand-drawn and -painted items on request, digital collage and illustration, and custom projects of all types.
