We use a process that is simple, smooth and fun to organise and streamline our work together. Our shared Studio Hub Trello boards keep everything in one place. They hold links to ALL our bits and pieces - contracts, invoices, to-dos, communication, images, schedule, content, final pieces, forms... everything! It makes our work smooth and flowing. I pair this with unique forms and file sharing and it brings beautiful ease to our work. No more sifting through chains of emails or wondering where to braindump that next big idea of yours...Massive yay for organisation!

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!"

Linda Palmer, PALMER SHEDS

"I honestly enjoyed all of our working together, FROM the initial QUESTIONNAIRE AND OUR meetings. 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. We feel really proud of our brand now."

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!"

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."

Rita Bikins, RED ROCK OLIVES

"10 years on and we still love our label. Sara did a brilliant job designing the label that our business has evolved around. Her ground work has allowed us to grow and develop our 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."

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."

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!"

We'll be a good fit if:

you are passionate

about what you do and love the thought of having great design that showcases that. You care about using design to truly connect you with your tribe and your people. 

you are READY

to invest in branding and design to take your business to the next level. You know what you're about. You are ready to trust in the expertise of a qualified, experienced and strategic designer. 

you LIKE what you see

You resonate with my website, my portfolio and my words. You get excited about working with a designer to create unique, soulful, purposeful, strategic, beautiful design.

FAQs

I'm not near you - can we still work together?

Q1

Absolutely. I work with clients all over the world. My invoicing system works well in every country and most of our communication will be via phone, email or file sharing. If we need to see each others faces, or screens, Skype and Zoom are great and if anything needs mailing I'm happy to do so. No problem!

Can I get it done ASAP?

Q2

I will do my best to accommodate timelines and goals, but please plan in advance for our creative process. I do commonly have a waiting list of up to two months, but will do what I can with your plans. Ensuring you are ready and organised from your end before we begin can help with deciding the timeframe and booking your work in.

Can I get a logo only?

Q3

Your logo is a huge part of your Visual Identity, but only a part. After 20 years in this industry, I believe wholly that a just a logo without strong branding behind it will likely fall flat on its face. My packages give you an understanding of your brand and how it can serve to get you more customers, which is an invaluable investment.

How can I be sure I will like what you do?

Q4

You are involved every step of the way, and I make sure you end up with a design that you are proud of. At the start of your project, we talk through your goals and parameters, which will guide the design process. Since you’re involved in each step, you can be confident your brand identity will be something you love.

How much do you charge? How long will it take?

Q5

If you are interested in branding, downloading the branding guide on the homepage will help with some sample pricing for branding packages. However, I treat each brand and project individually as each business has different needs. 

Branding Packages average 6-8 weeks and are typically an investment of AUD$2600-$6900.

Websites average 4-8 weeks and are typically an investment of AUD$3000-$4000. 

Other design including packaging and print marketing will most likely be charged at an hourly rate. Please enquire in the application below to find out more.

How does payment work?

Q6

Website and branding is typically broken up into 3-4 payments. With most projects, I am happy to work with you to design a payment schedule that works for both of us. Payment for print projects needs to be made before I send your design to print.

Payment can be done via credit card through my secure online payment system (Stripe) or direct deposit to my account. 

Do you offer support after we finish?

Q7

I am always here for you! If you need another format of your logo or a few more words added to your brochure, just let me know!

I already know exactly what I want my design/logo to look like. Can you make it for me?

Q8

Sorry, No. The most integral part of my work (and my favourite bit!) is the creation of ideas and strategy work behind your actual design. If you’ve already planned it, you don’t need to hire a brand designer, just someone with software knowledge. No sense paying a surgeon to put your band-aid on.
