hi there!

I'm Sarah. I'm currently a graphic design student at the Kansas City Art Institute and plan to graduate in the spring of 2018. Currently, I'm interning for Playlistplay, a small music publication based out of Kansas City. By working with musical artists and creatives, I've had many opportunities to marry my love of design and music. I've also interned at Populous (May - December 2017) doing large scale graphic work for various clients such as the Kansas City Chiefs, the Chicago Cubs, Purdue University, and the University of Florida. With a national award-winning high school career in photojournalism, I bring a variety of photography and writing skills within my projects. I also enjoy incorporating illustration within my work to give it a handmade, authentic feel. I'm definitely influenced by minimalistic work but I also have a passion for patterns. All that being said, typography is my one true love; I will forage to the ends of the earth to find the perfect typeface, or, I'll just design my own. I like to keep things simple and easy, as most things should be.

Outside of design, I'm an avid sports fan. My love of baseball has been passed down to my by my dad, and being from Kansas City, my favorite team is the Royals. I also love my Chiefs, even if they can't seem to win a playoff game. I consider myself a logophile, a nerd that loves spelling and words. At the moment, my favorite word is anthology, but that's bound to change. I'm unusually good at remembering names and birthdays — tell me once and I won't forget. My favorite movie is Titanic and my love for Leonardo DiCaprio is endless. I like long walks on the beach (even though I'm landlocked) and enjoy anything that combines mint and chocolate.
