A Designer with passion and purpose.
I’m Sarskia, a Designer and Art Director at the peak of my powers, producing end-to-end brand and design solutions for smart, ambitious and purpose-led businesses. From concept to crafted design to detail-oriented final art, I deliver.
I lead brand and design strategy, direct effective creative campaigns, oversee photo and video shoots, and present with aplomb.
I also love collaborating and really enjoy getting creatives with complimentary skills together to lift work to all new levels. I’m a sound strategic thinker too, I’m great at bridging the gap between business and design, or account service and studio.
I come from an advertising agency background, where I’ve worked my way up from Graphic Designer to Design Lead in just 5 years. But now it’s time to go out on my own.
A recent highlight was a branding and promotion project for the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival. Designed to span three years and draw a new audience, I designed a whimsical world channelling the festival’s magical garden setting. A favourite local Hamilton restaurant, Banh Mi Caphe, also got the full brand treatment including new logo, menus and iconography.
As a successful graduate, I was invited back to Waikato Institute of Technology to teach Design Integration to second-year Graphic Design students. I also continued my own education completing a Certificate in Sustainable Business Strategy from Harvard Business School Online.
So, if your brand is driven by greater purpose, or your agency needs an accomplished design driver, I want to work with you.
