My name is Sara Bowers, Owner and Creative Director of Studio 8. I am an artist, a coffee-obsessed wanderluster, a mother, a foodie and wine lover and a mountain girl. I live and breathe design. For the past two decades, I’ve helped hundreds of small businesses by creating soulful, strategic branding and graphic design to help elevate their marketing and packaging.

20 years ago, I made my first 9-step commute to my home office. It was a spare bedroom at my house in the suburbs of San Francisco. It’s fair to say I’ve done this work-from-home thing for awhile now. I’ve adapted my ways and found a few tricks and tips that work well for me. I’ve been asked quite a bit lately how I do it, so here goes. (Also, In case you’re wondering, yes, I did write this in the height of the first hints of Covid craziness in 2020. That said, first I’ll explain that in “normal” life, I do not do it with a four-year old screaming “Mummy, watch this one!!” as she spectacularly dives off the bedhead to the mattress for the seventieth time in a row since 7am while I try to thoughtfully compose an email in the makeshift desk in the spare bedroom. )
