FRESH. SMART. CLEAN DESIGN.

Great design makes a lasting impression. Too often, organizations settle for uninspired, cliche design and they devalue their web presence and marketing potential. It’s my hope to be part of work that cultivates fresh thinking to solve problems and make an impact. I believe that design and information accessibility at their best have the potential to change communities and the world.

ABOUT

WHO I AM

Sometimes designers are hard to work with. They can be touchy when their work is critiqued, can habitually miss deadlines, and can (at the end of the day) give you a headache.

I’m not like that. I’m dependable, highly organized, very responsive, and easy to work with. I produce fresh, smart, and clean design.

WHAT I KNOW

I’m passionate about layout, typography, color, and information-hierarchy. Some of my technical skills include:
    Adobe Creative Suite 5
        Photoshop
        Illustrator
        InDesign
    XHTML, CSS, and PHP
    MARC Standards, MARC-XML

WEB DESIGN

ONDREY PHOTOGRAPHY

Rebecca Ondrey is a portrait and lifestyle photographer from Western New York whose portfolio and business has gained swift momentum. Her business needed a website to showcase her work, offer clients a look at recent shoots, and promote her availability. The site includes a recent work portfolio as well as a general portfolio highlighting photographs from maternity, newborn, children, families, and glamour sessions.

I am so proud of the website Sarah put together for my business! It was wonderful to work with another artist who listened to what I wanted, and then took it to the next level. The site is more than I could have hoped for, and it was such a simple, smooth process! Working with Sarah has been a positive, refreshing experience and the site she designed provided the platform I needed to advertise my services and grow my business. So many clients comment that they love my website, and I have Sarah to thank for that. I highly recommend her as a designer and as an artist; she designs with incredible thought and excellence, and produces the results you want very quickly!

CAMP MISSION MEADOWS

Camp Mission Meadows’ website needed a facelift and an information overhaul. They wanted their web presence to match the enthusiasm, fun, and passion their campers and staff share during the summer and throughout the year at retreats and conferences taking place onsite. Among these and other enhancements, online donations and camper photo galleries help connect users to camp, even after they’ve left the campground.

Our new website has garnered numerous positive comments. People like the fresh design and user-friendly format. Sarah has been great to work with. When we send her updates, they’re posted very quickly and she even reminds us sometimes when we need to add something new!

DESIGN FOR AMERICA

Design for America is an award-winning national initiative using design to create local and social impact. They needed an updated website that could connect their studios from across the country and present a clear message to their growing audience of students, faculty, mentors, partners, sponsors, and press inquiries. DFA’s site includes video and project galleries, dynamic studio-based content, and more.

Sarah is a gem. Her designs are the ones you knew you were searching for, but didn’t know how to find. You see your organization reflected in them because she works so deeply with you to understand your needs and wants. In addition to all this, she is a fabulous person to work with. She is kind and patient all the way through to the finish, always delivering with a smile. She did an incredible job with DFA and quite literally, got us live within 24 hours for an urgent deadline before some very large publicity. I can now be proud of our website and we thank Sarah entirely for this. I’ve heard from students that they now just go to our website to look at how pretty it is. I must admit, I do the same and am excited every time.
        – Sami Nerenberg, director of operations



C&D FAMILY FARMS

Serving farmers’ markets in Chicago, C&D Family Farms is committed to raising hogs in their natural environment. Their website needed a complete overhaul to connect with their urban, food-conscious clientele.

GLOBAL KITCHEN

Global Kitchen was born out of a love for food, culture, stories, and shared meals and brings these elements together through immigrant-led cooking classes. Through their classes, Global Kitchen preserves traditional recipes and establishes a space for vibrant cultural exchange. In addition to informational pages, this start-up needed a website with a complex recipe classification system that would allow users to find recipes used in their classes from around the world.
