Sarah’s passion for paper and design started early in life. As a child, she spent endless hours writing, drawing, making posters and playing “office”. After graduating with a Business degree and working for a software company, she decided to turn her love of graphic design into a full-time career, and after completing her design education at Humber College in Toronto and traveling around Australia for a year, Hip Ink was born.
What are Sarah’s passions?
“I’m passionate about paper – the way it looks, the way it feels, and all the amazing things you can do with it. I’m passionate about typography – oh how I love to play with fonts, watch how letterforms can change an entire design, and geek out over which fonts have the best ampersands. I’m passionate about design – I love to put things together and take them apart, shuffle things around, cut and paste, and create magic.
Most of all, I’m passionate about working together to with my clients to create stationery that reflect their personality and their special event, that sets the stage for their guests, and that they can send out with pride knowing that it is a one-of-a-kind expression of their personal style.”
Sarah lives in beautiful Burlington, Ontario with her IT-geek husband, two gorgeous little boys, two cats and is still mourning the end of the show Lost. She loves traveling (favourite spots: Australia, Tahiti and Bali), CFL football (the Tiger Cats, never the Argos)and the four true food groups – bread, cheese, chocolate and Diet Coke.
