Sara loves to connect dots in unexpected ways. An award winning Creative Director, she holds a Masters in Design from the Pratt Institute in New York and was a fellow with Milton Glaser. She helps people and businesses uncover untapped potential, realize core values, and create beautiful, tangible spaces for ideas to thrive. A graphic designer by training with a passion for transformative education, she believes in developing flexible systems that empower others to accomplish more together than they can individually.
Distinguished by her ravenous curiosity and frequent pops of color, Sara also teaches an Innovations in Marketing class at NYU, has taught Design at Hofstra University and serves as a visiting critic at Pratt. Her independent design consultancy practice spans over 15 years in the US and abroad and includes international brands as well as work for small businesses and individuals.
You’ll find her connecting with people – and connecting dots – wherever deep, heartwarming conversations are to be had.
P.S: Sara spoke at a Creative Mornings last year at Audience Takes the Stage. She was over the moon about being able to speak to such lovely people about how your sense of community shifts when you have to rebuild it from scratch, check it out below!
Design meets people. I spend a lot of time reading, thinking and listening to people talk about how design and our values pull through every part of work/life.
Never underestimate how strongly your world view, personality and personal experiences combine to shape your perspective. Open heartedness is a value worth upholding in life and work that shows itself in all sorts of bountiful ways.
Connections betweens my work, readings, listenings and how they apply to work, teaching and life.
