You’re a small business. But you’re not small time.

And if you’re not small time, your business visuals shouldn’t be either. Your brand identity, website, eBook, social media graphics, intake forms, all the visual experiences your clients have with your business—they should make you look like the expert you are.

Up until now, design may have been low on your priorities. But your prospects and clients have not been. And you know that if they’re high up on your list of priorities, designing a brand identity, website, eBook, etc. that they personally connect to and enjoy interacting with should be high up there too.

Don’t think of design as just the way your business looks. Think of it as defining the experience others have with your business. And if you want them to have a good experience, if you want your business to come across as not only the best choice, but the only choice for your prospects—you need good design.

I’m Sara, and I can help with that.

What I Design
Brand Identity
Brand Identities

Think of it as the thumbprint of your business. A whole visual system, developed around the core of your identity: your logo. So that everything—from your website, to your photography, to your future world domination by digital product—recognizably belongs to your business, and yours alone.

Website
Websites

If you exist in this day and age, you know what a website is. You know you need one that’s going to serve your business through serving your clients and customers, and that’ll work day in and day out to help you reach your goals. Not to mention, one that’ll grow as your business grows, and somehow looks damn fine while doing it. Sounds like a reach, but lucky for you—I have long arms.

PDFs
PDFs

Whether it’s a free opt-in incentive, your debut PDF eCourse, a media kit, pricing sheet, interactive workbooks, or all that in between… your PDFs should be spectacular: legible, functional, and jaw-droppingly beautiful. These aren’t your “drag & drop into a basic template” designs, these are page-by-page painstakingly crafted to put your content on a pedestal.

I love the final product! And I'm not the only one—I'm so proud when people complement me on the look & flow of the website. I just loved working together, and it did feel like such a collaboration. I feel so confident when handing out my cards and promoting myself.

Working with Sara was a dream... simple, spot on, and very organized. I loved it! From working with Sara I got greater engagement, affirmation in my grand vision... confidence. Students in my course and a launching pad to move toward my dreams.

"Because of Sara's vision and dedication, I feel a deep call to show up more fully, to deliver from a much more raw and gritty place and to draw people closer to this visual lighthouse. What she has done (and continues to do, 'cause let's be honest, she's not getting rid of me now) so far exceeds what I had originally set out to achieve that I am now in the process of creating new goals and dreams to better match our collective trajectory."

Sara is amazing as a designer and a person. She clearly knows her shit better than most, has rad ideas, and can execute them like an absolute pro. She's receptive, open, and adaptable, and got on the phone with me so we could brainstorm towards the end (and it was her suggestion). I definitely felt taken care of. What we ended up with stands out, is slick, and is obviously a drastic improvement. I feel proud of the final result—it's a big upgrade.

I am thrilled with the final result, and could not possibly think more of Sara's talent than I do. I shopped around A LOT before I reached out to Sara - very few designers were open enough to see the vision, let alone move on it. Sara did, and as a result, my product is first in class.

Singingbird

I feel more confident about my identity since working with Sara. I feel confident that "Singingbird" is the right name for my business since making the new logo. I always thought it was maybe too childish and not professional or serious enough to call the business Singingbird. But I feel the logo and branding has elevated the name to something professional and meaningful that I think a lot of people will be able to relate to.

"Because of the eye-catching avant garde design of my ebook, splash page, social media graphics and more, I now find myself on the radar of not only my ideal clients, but also people I admire and look up to in the business arena. I have booked interviews, magazine covers, writing gigs and more, which is directly connected to this galactic internet stardust Sara has created."

I am SO glad that I chose to work with Sara, she has really helped me shape my business and I couldn't be more thankful. I am so, so happy that I came to her when I was starting from scratch because without Sara's help I would not have the brand that I have now.

Working with Sara on my website was a wonderfully collaborative process. She seemed to be really vested in making sure that the website not only fit my personality and design ideas, but that it was also in line with the vision I had for my business and the types of clients I want to work with. I felt like Sara took all of my disjointed, potentially conflicting ideas and design preferences—I have very eclectic tastes—and managed to wrangle it all into a cohesive and beautiful whole that represented the perfect design for me that I never could have imagined for myself.

It was great to find someone who loves what they do, provides professional advice tactfully, can run with an idea in a direction I’d never have foreseen and be my ally in crafting the very fine details. The result: a beautiful product, a happy client, and suitably impressed subscribers.
