PORTFOLIO OVERHAUL

I'm updating this journal a little early (my usual schedule seems to be every six months, lol) to announce some big news! Over the last two weeks or so, I've been working on a complete revamp of my portfolio site and it's finally finished. Although there are a few more tweaks to make, it's good enough to go live and be shared. Someday soon, I really want to put a personal illustration on the home page instead of the desktop spread that I have currently, but that requires a few spare hours that I don't really have right now. Let me know what you think! You'll probably see a host of new projects on there that aren't on deviantART yet.

CAREER UPDATE

Another piece of news that I wanted to share is that I left the marketing agency I've been working for. There are a lot of details surrounding why I left, but I'll keep it short and sweet… Being the only designer at a growing agency didn't leave a lot of room for anything else in my life, and taking work home with me every night was exhausting. I also missed designing under a creative director who could pass on her knowledge to me and help me hone my skills. I felt like I was too young for the amount of responsibility I was being given—I'm capable of a lot and I'm not without talent, but it's still very early in my career to work alone.

So, needless to say, I am job hunting again. I made sure that my first priority was an updated, responsive portfolio website and now that it's basically done, I'm beginning to send out applications again. In the meantime, I'm working a few freelance opportunities to keep me busy. It's been really nice to go at a slower pace for awhile and focus on the things that matter to me, like spending quality time with my family, my friends, and my boyfriend. I'm sure that my dog likes having me home so much, but I know that my parents would like me to get up and move out as soon as possible, so the search for full time employment is on!

HOUSEKEEPING

Even though I've had a lot more free time lately, I am still horribly behind on posting work here. Honestly, I'm not sure when I'll get around to it, so feel free to pop by my portfolio website and see what I've been up to lately. The sheer number of messages and deviations I've been neglecting here is pretty overwhelming, so I tend to log in, take care of whatever messages I can, and leave. However, I have noticed that there has been an inexplicable increase in deviants who watch me, so that motivates me to try and be more active around here. I hope you all are doing well and producing stellar work! See you the next time I decide to update. XD

Thanks for viewing, faving, sharing, praising, chatting, and watching,
Sara

Hi, there! Welcome to my humble deviantART userpage.

My name is Sara. I'm 24 and initially from Seattle, Washington. Back in 2013, I received my Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from my university in Ohio. Currently, I work (and play) as a graphic designer in North Carolina.

Up until my college years, I was a traditional artist who occasionally used Microsoft Publisher as a digital medium. Thankfully, I've moved on to the Adobe Creative Suite. I work a lot with Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, but I do sometimes dabble in Flash and HTML/CSS.

My gallery is a mish-mash of fantasy art, equine art, poetry, photography, and especially graphic design and illustration. I've been on deviantART since December of 2006 and gone through many creative stages, so naturally my work reflects this evolution.

Feel free to poke around! I'm actually quite friendly and love talking about graphic design—in fact, I might never shut up, lol.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate the love.
