Design and Creative Director | Co Creator | Legal Designer | Event Coordinator | AKA Queen of Many ‘Hats’
Sarah is the Design and Creative Director here at Happy Lawyer Happy Life where she has developed a specialised expertise and fondness for brand development, identity, strategy and digital design execution.
Sarah is delightful – a truly colourful, warm, compassionate presence at HLHL HQ! Sarah brings all these loving qualities to all work and services she provides.
Sarah currently works in a number of different capacities, relying on her skills in creativity and innovation as well as her experience in coordination and business to be as versatile and adaptable as possible.
Sarah is also a Brisbane-based creative baker and business owner of Baked Livingness– a vibrant, supportive and nourishing food baking service alternative. Baked Livingness is simply a reflection of Sarah’s effervescent love of life, colour and energy.
With a Bachelor in Design (Interior), many years of experience in various design roles, co-ordinating a creative event space, as well as running her own business, Sarah has a multi-faceted and distinctive understanding of design and general business management across the board. Sarah particularly enjoys the interlacing that design and life experiences bring and how these create opportunities to evolve design into beautiful expression.
Sarah has recently started a Masters in Design Futures at RMIT Uni where she hopes to reaffirm and build on her knowledge, creativity and design techniques. By undertaking this masters program, Sarah aims to better identify and articulate the value and contributions that design brings to business, systems, societies and lives.
The legal industry is at a pivotal point with design thinking methodologies fast becoming the solution. People are seeking human centred and purpose-built design services. Sarah works within Brisbane Family Law Centre with specialist family lawyers to enable the legal team to communicate effectively, visually, and simply with their clients. This provides the client with a simpler understanding of their complex legal matters.
Sarah has loved being apart of the Happy Lawyer Happy Life community and is looking forward to more fun and great learnings together! Sarah is best contactable via email or on her mobile 0434 632 527.
