Hi, I'm Sara.
Let me bring your brand to life!

Studio 8 is a bespoke graphic design studio and brand consultant (fuelled by passion, an artisan approach to design, and countless cups of strong coffee).  For the past two decades, I've helped empower hundreds of businesses by creating soulful, strategic branding and stunning websites to elevate them to the next level.

You are soulful, passionate and intelligent. You are a boundary-pusher with dynamic ideas. You take pride in what you do and do it well. You are ready to turn a page. You imagine having beautiful, empowering branding and design that reflects the work you so lovingly do.

me

I listen, and get to know the personality, dreams, soul and stories of you and your business. I believe that branding and web design should be elegant as well as powerful; it should spark smiles as well as sales. And absolutely - that our design journey should be nurturing, smooth and joyful.

A Bit about ME

I'm Sara Bowers, the proud Owner, Creative Director, and dedicated Brand Consultant at Studio 8. I am an artist, a coffee-obsessed wanderluster, a mother, a devout taco connoisseur, wine lover and a mountain girl. I live and breathe design. I established Studio 8 in 2001 and have since thrived on helping small businesses elevate and grow with creative and purposeful branding and graphic design.

MORE ABOUT SARA & STUDIO 8

hi!

Nancy Panter, SUBROSA WINES

“We are extremely happy with the final result of Sara's update to our wine brand and labels. Working with Sara was a true collaboration.

She helped us take our brand to the next level. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with her for all our design needs.”

Rita Bikins,
RED ROCK OLIVES

“10 years on and we still love our branding & Packaging! Sara did a brilliant job designing the labelS that our business has evolved around. She understood the strength of a great base. Her ground work has allowed us to grow and develop our product range. Sara is easy to communicate with and she has a thoughtful wholistic approach to what your business needs to present to the public. Always a joy to work with her.”

Josephina McDonald,
HALLS GAP LAKESIDE TOURIST PARK / GRAMPIANS GETAWAY

“The designs that Sara has created have impacted and transformed our businesses. Branding is a vital part of the success of any business. When you have your branding right (you know when it is right, I promise!) you have established your fundaments to build further on; it gives you a framework! Sara has accomplished all of my goals and what I love most is that it is forever evolving, just like life!”

Dawn Clark, SALTWOOD BUILD

“Sara's quiet confidence and vision, right from our early conversations, has lead to the business we are today. Having someone with as much talent as Sara to help guide and channel our flowing ideas into real and powerful branding has been a game-changer. I would 110% encourage you to take the leap and work with Sara, her work stands alone and neither you or your business will look back!”

Tracey Skinner, Grampians Gatherings/ACT Natimuk

“I loved working with Sara - her passion for design and for giving her all to achieve her client's vision is inspiring. She took our initial thoughts and turned them into something that packed the punch we were looking for. The branding design and marketing collateral was on point. Feedback from all who have engaged with the design has been positive and we now have an identifiable brand that will carry us into the future.”

Michael Beuskens, ROAMA MOBILE WOOD FIRED PIZZERIA

“No one has been quite so fundamental in creating the look and feel of my brand as the wonderfully talented Sara. She so elegantly captured both my hopes and ideas, quietly removing the cringe-worthy and created something so right for Roama with the logos, branding and website. Love your work. Thanks Sara.”

Andy Scott,
PATHWAY PHYSIOTHERAPY

“Sara has a great vision for what will look good on screen and provide a cohesive message to potential clients. The website has kick-started my business. Sara was great at listening to my core values and giving a great practical drive to realising this in the website. I'm very happy with the whole site. it really conveys my message and ethos, hopefully giving the client a little bit of inspiration - thanks for the great work!”

Linda Palmer, PALMER SHEDS

"I honestly enjoyed all of our working together, from the initial questionnaire and our meeting to discuss answers. Sara was professional, easy going and actually listened to what we wanted. She welcomed our ideas, appreciated that we were involved in the process and supported our changes. Sara was great to work with. our branding has set a more professional feel to our business when dealing with clients. We feel really proud of our brand now."
