Sara Cravens – Designer

Mild mannered Program Coordinator by day, fearless illustrator and designer by night. Creating the extraordinary from the mundane.

Overview

I am a long-time illustrator and designer with experience working on brochure, theatrical program, book layout, and program guide design, as well as children's book illustration. I design and illustrate based on Art Nouveau aesthetics, and enjoy everything from the macabre to the whimsical.

I'm a hard worker and thrive on new projects and the opportunity to both improve and learn new skills.

"She was excellent! Sara is very talented and was able to get our not so clear vision and put it to paper, creating a wonderful design. She was very patient and willing to make different adjustment. We highly recommend her. "

"Sara asked a lot of questions, which let me know that she really cared about my project and that she wanted to fully understand my expectations of the deliverable. She was very nice and easy to work with. She complied with our agreed upon timeline and the product she delivered was creative and beautiful!"
