Sarah Phelps

I'm a multi-disciplinary designer with an eye for detail and a solid design background, thanks to more than 13 years of industry experience and an education at Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland. 

I have worked on both sides of the Atlantic, starting my design career in Scotland before relocating to Canada in 2008, where I spent five years creating award-winning design work for local businesses and non-profit organisations.

Past projects have included logo design and brand development, design for print including concept-driven annual reports, packaging design, and web design.

After almost a decade of working in industry I launched my own studio in 2012. In addition to working on great design projects, this gives me the opportunity to really focus on developing a personal connection with my clients – something that / which I value as it can really inform the creative process. I also combine my design background with a passion for traditional printmaking, and offer letterpress printing services.

Now based in the UK, I work with clients in the UK, the USA, and Canada.

Sarah'S WORK 

 

Sarah'S BEST FIT

Small to medium sized businesses and non-profits who value carefully-considered, thoughtful design with a clean, bright, and modern design aesthetic.

“Sarah created our webpage from scratch, and it turned out exactly as we hoped – it has a clean, professional and contemporary look, and is perfectly tailored to our needs. Working with Sarah was a pleasure from start to finish. She was very efficient, and easy and fun to communicate with. She implemented all edits quickly, such that the website was finished even ahead of the date we had initially set. After an introduction from Sarah we find it easy to manage the content of the page ourselves. Thanks again for a great job!

“I turned to Sarah for help with a multi-partnered project for which there were minimal resources and tight deadlines. She delivered beautifully crafted, original designs that captured perfectly the essence of our project’s goals. Sarah’s work was on time and on budget. I highly recommend her!

— Rachel Boehm, MA, CHE Program Leader, Capital Health

“We approached Sarah to design a logo for our new dance school and we are so pleased with not only the final design, but our entire experience. Sarah had great energy and enthusiasm for our project, she was easy to work with (even with an ocean between us!), and she was very open to feedback which gave us the best product we could ask for. We highly recommend Sarah and will look to her again when our next design need arises.
