About me

Hello, I'm Sara. A 26 year old graphic designer from London. In 2012, I graduated with a first in Art History from Nottingham University. I then went onto study Graphic Design at Shillington College, London. Since then I've worked for The Dots UK and for the past two years I've been a full-time designer at Newl&Potter, as well as having several personal and commissioned projects as a freelancer. I have an interdisciplinary approach and try not be restricted by distinct creative areas. When I'm not designing or drinking tea, I enjoy peanut butter, yoga and houseplants.
